Have a nose bleed - a recurring event or something that happens to you for no good reason. This is what pupls will say if their nose starts bleeding in class. ´I´ve got a nose bleed.´ 
Have a bleeding nose - this is what happens if somebody thumps you or you bang it! And you would probably say ´My nose is bleeding!´ rather than ´I´ve got a bleeding nose´.

If someone thumps you, you can also say, "I have a bloody nose," or "He/She gave me a bloody nose."
