Having whole seeds in the poop indicates your bird isn't properly digesting the food and as a consequence isn't getting the right nutrition. That coupled with the fact that your cockatiel lost a lot of blood yesterday is clearly not a good thing because an injured animal that is in recovery needs to eat a good diet in order to get the strength to get better. If you don't have egg food, then get some, also try to offer spray millet, which is easy to dehusk and digest.
Your cockatiel really needs to be seen by an avian vet, so that he is properly tested to see if he has a digestion problem and medicated, not to mention his injured eye also needs to be seen.
The problem with the seed on the poop most likely won't go away untreated and there is the risk your cockatiel may slowly start to starve from lack of nutrients.

Hes only new remember new birds dont eat for about 2 days until they are used to their surroundings and he wont eat anything else or drink water and he still has dry blood around his eye
Yes, but after bleeding profusely any living being needs nourishment in order to cope better. After donating blood, we need to replenish for what was lost and drink lots of liquids and have a good meal rich in iron.
You should have made sure after all that the cockatiel has been through that it was important for the bird to eat and drink. This is not a normal situation to go through right after getting a new bird.
