It is not a dumb question - sorry for not explaining properly - clotting factors are proteiens that are made by your liver and that is used by your blood to stop bleeding if you cut yourself for instance. Sometimes if you have a clotting factor shortage, you can start bleeding from the bladder, bowel or nose for no reason at all.
