Hi My newborn is currently just over two weeks old

Patient : Hi. My newborn is currently just over two weeks old and for thebpast week has had a weepy eye leaking yellow discharge and then crusting as it drys or when hw first wakes up. I have been doctors and they said it was conjunctivitis and gave me eye drops and a medicine called flucloxacillin. However he has had slight bleeding weeping from his eye now as well more than once and although i mentioned this to the doctor when i went back he didnt say much and refered me to the hospital to see an eye pediatrician who also said it was conjunctivitis and to carry on with the medication and to come back in 2 weeks. As he didnt mention the bleeding either its worrying me as to why this is happening and if its normal. Any advice would be much appreciated. Kayleigh .
