It happened to me. I would wake up in the middle of the night, my face really warm and ... wet. The worst part was when it got encrusted in my hair and skin. This really warrants a visit to your doctor. He'll take a look up your nose with a little torch, and I got given a nasal spray because it was, and I quote, "scabby". My sister has terrible nosebleeds, and she got prescribed some pills. We both got better. Seriously though, check it out with a doc.
When your nose starts bleeding, make sure you know how to make it stop. Pinch the top of the nose, the bony part, to constrict the blood vessels. Let the blood clot. You might need to change tissues often. Do not flush out your blood-bogeys or blow your nose really hard - especially when it's all... fresh ... after a nosebleed. See first-aid tips for better diagrams and demonstrations. When you feel the inevitable nosebleed behind the corner, I put plenty of soft kitchen towels/tissues on my pillow. So prepare yourself each night, also.
