Does the medication have color to it, sometimes it looks different when it dries so maybe what you think is blood is the medication. He needs his beak trimmed by the vet, when a bird has liver issues they are more prone to bleeding if the beak is trimmed too short and it is a delicate procedure so I would have the vet do it. My fatty liver guy goes every 3 weeks for a trim and because of the liver issue the vet techs that usually do the beak and nail trims on a healthy bird, are not allowed to do the fatty liver birds, the vet does them.

Oh wow I hope it doesn't come to that. His vet is fairly far away and expensive too. He is very easily scared so they sedated him to draw blood and trim nails last time. The medication is kind of yellowy orange, it stains paper towels a bright yellow color.

At some pint you will have to get the beak trimmed, if it gets too long it can interfere with his ability to eat.

I agree with Cody.
You need to monitor his ability to eat very carefully. When the beak becomes too long and the bird is not able to eat, it will become mal-nourished very quickly.
