Help! Bleeding nipple during pregnancy??

Sorry if this is TMI, but I am a little concerned. I am eighteen weeks pregnant with twins, and I noticed today that there was something dark on one of my nipples. I gently rubbed it off, and my nipple started to lightly bleed. Nothing major, about two drops. But, I am completely freaked out. I am hoping that it's just that my nipple was dry and cracked maybe, which caused it to bleed??

I called my doctor (waiting for a call back because it's Saturday), and I hope that he will let me know what's going on.

Has anyone else had this happen while pregnant? I'm so concerned that if I'm having issues with cracked nipples now that I'm going to have a much harder time nursing my twins. Any suggestions?
