Please do not seek veterinary advice in an internet forum. It is extremely important that your dam (mother dog) and her puppies be examined by a veterinary post whelp (birth). Your veterinarian can assess your dam for potentially deadly post whelp complications (e.g. retained placentas) and check the puppies for visible birth defects, including those you may not notice. Given that your dam is only a puppy herself, she is at a much greater risk for such complications. Also ask your veterinarian about the health and behavioral benefits of spaying a neutering.

Take your dog to the vet if she is still bleeding or anything like that something could be wrong. bleeding stops after the first day if its been a week take her in. Dont pay any mind to peoples insults.

I would of taken her to the vet long before now.
She could be in trouble.

She is way too young to have had pups already & she & the pups need to see a vet!
Please spay her & stop contributing to the plight of pet overpopulation!
Sorry for my previous answer. That was way out of line.
First of all, your pup is way too young too breed. Your dog should be at least 2 years old before bred. This is because at the age of 2 your dog will be fully mature and she can have her OFA testing done. To become a good breeder, you have to work, and you have to work HARD. You must educate yourself like crazy, find an experienced breeder to guide you, show your female, etc...
It's A LOT of work, and if your not doing this kind of work, then you shouldn't be breeding dogs. There are thousands of homeless dogs out in shelters. Please go into a shelter. Look around at what you see. Sadness, Loneliness, Hopelessness. All these dogs. Your pups are preventing some of these dogs from going home. And most of the time when they don't go home, they get killed. Look, you sound like you care about your dog enough, so please, do your research.
Don't litter, spay and neuter:
