She is quite young but, fence breeding can indeed happen. :(

Blood can indicate, aborting, infection, being hit super hard by a big Doe and cause internal damage and hemeraging(sp).

Is she dripping blood constantly or is it just there? How long has it been going on?
Is it fresh red blood or darker colored blood?

It is odd for a Doe that young to be bleeding like that. :(

Is there any bad odor coming from her vulva or just blood?

Temp is normal ..101.5-103.5 is the norml range...

Could be she rubbed it agains the fence or one with horns rammed her...causing the bleeding and swelling...

I would clean her up and keep an eye on her..

That's what I'm afraid of it appears my other young does are in heat as well now I don't have another place to move him right now so gonna have to put something between their fences to prevent it from happening to the others ;-(

Pallets would make a good barrier...
for your doe..she is way too young to be bred, if you find she took I would talk to your vet about Lut...a medication to clean her out....if you do a blood test (I htink at least 30 days after breeding) it will let you know if she is indeed bred.

best wishes
