I was just holding my bird and I noticed this bleeding feather on the inside of his wing. Is it okay? It has a really long shaft and is bloody at the top.

Generally, it's a good idea to take your bird to the vet if he's bleeding, at least that's what I would do. Take some flour (plain unbleached all-purpose white flour) or cornstarch and pack it on there and put a little bit of pressure on. Should help to stop the bleeding. I'm sure others with better advice than I will come along.
