Injury Bloody bedding???

My two boars are fighting in the cage a bit lately. Just got them last Sunday. I hear the whining and some wrestling around and it lasts for about 10 seconds. I changed their bedding last night to a white bedding. This morning some of the white bedding pieces look like the photo attached. Not sure if it's blood stained or just poop. I don't see any physical injury on either of them. Any advice??

Is that carefresh? When I used white carefresh the dark brown pieces would be wear Ted weed, so my guess is it is just where they've been tinkling :)
In the pic, that is not bloody urine on the right.
Yes it is Carfresh but all white, no brown bedding in there. I'm just a nervous newbie owner I guess :) Don't know if I should seperate them or not. I bought a second cage just in case, but am hesitant to use it. Everything I read seems to say that it's a dominance thing and it may pass.
I wish I still used the white Carefresh so I could show you what happens to Teds wee. I don't think it's anything to worry about, plus I noticed if they wee over any poo then the poo tends to run into the wee. I was getting so worried finding these dark brown wees, yet when I watched him wee it would be normal, then one day I saw him pee over a poop and I could see it running into the wee.
Could be boar glue? or normal wee color?
