If the bleed does not stop on its own and comes in large amounts, you need to visit the emergency for the control of this bleeding. You may also try this technique, to pinch your nose with your head tilted forward, for a few secs and release it. Repeat this technique several times, and it may help stop the bleeding from your nose. You may also apply ice packs on your cheeks to do the same.
