Is this a budgie’s broken blood feather? ?

hi! I have a white budgie and just today I noticed something in her feathers. It looks like a blood feather, but I’m not sure if it needs to be removed. A few months ago, she bled due to blood feather so I immediately removed it. This time, I’m hesitant because even if it looks very red, there’s no actual bleeding! is this normal? i don’t want to cause her unnecessary pain :( 

do i remove it or let it be? We don’t really have an avian vet around now, so your opinions will be very helpful! 


BTW, she has this situation going on both sides of her wings!

    It isn't bleeding so leave it alone.

    I would just leave it for now, and keep a close eye on it for any changes.
