OmniPod issues

I am recently very new to the OmniPod systems and have only been using it for a week. Yesterday I noticed blood in the cannula window and with one day left to go on my pod I changed it out for a new one. Today I was monitoring my pod closely and noticed blood in the window again! Is this common or a concern? My BG has been fine but I am still worried as I am new to this. Do I need to change my pod every time I see blood in the cannula window?

I have had blood work its way past the cannula (i find it on the cloth adhesive). My question is hOW can you see anything through that stupid window? its so small and distorted and not even clear.
Ive had some pretty bloody adhesives but never anything filling the window.

do you have slow blood clotting? Do you pinch the area where the cannula will go and hold down the pod when you deploy the cannula?
