Worm like thing coming out of my piercing, is this normal?

(Australia)

I live in australia and I've had my nose pierced for almost 6 months now. I've had this clear plastic nose stud in for school for over a month and I just took it out to put my nose screw in like I did last weekend. Anyway, I was cleaning the nose screw and I noticed this worm like thing poking out of my piercing, so I pulled on it and it broke, so I got my tweezers out and pulled as much of it out as I could, it was almost an inch long~ it was bleeding but my piercing wasnt bleeding and it doesn't hurt. I put my nose screw in and I'm fine, should I see a doctor about this in case it was a vein or something? PLEEEAAASE HELP, I'm really freaking out! D:

I know I'm a bit late for an answer but adding in case others are looking for one. It's normal. It can happen with any piercing. I get them when I change my nose ring. I have a bone so the ball on the end is more likely to make this happen than others. It is the healed skin coming out. It's a tube, up to an inch in length. It gets caught on the nose ring and gets pulled out. Just pull it out, clean and put your jewelry back in. No parasites to worry about.

Okay I thought it was just me that literally just happened to me and idk what it was I know when I tried to pull on it it hurt so I screamed to my mom and so poured peroxide on it and clipped it off as much as she could and it was still a piece but small and I pushed my nose ring back in and I also have a clear stud for work but it was scary
