My almost two week old's belly button....

It had fallen off on it's own except a little piece, the pediatrician just wiped it off with a alcohol wipe and said she can have baths now, but when we got home her belly button was bleeding a little..nothing bad. It clotted back up. What should I do now? Do I just bathe her and wipe the old blood away or what?
