A few days ago I checked on my bird and noticed blood in its cage and found that most of its nail on 2 toes (same foot) are almost completely gone and I had quick stop for the bleeding but now I’m not quite sure what to do. Please give advice on what to do next (currently my bird is not bleeding and doesn’t seem to be in any pain)

I would just keep the area clean, and keep an eye on it. If it starts looking swollen or puffy, or the bird starts messing with it, I'd be making a call to the vet.

There's quite a bit of poop on the feet. Is your Conure just a goober, or is he/she getting in to it a lot? I'd be worried that trekking through poop would be asking for infection.

You can create a false bottom in your bird's current cage so that they have less ability to hurt themselves. I've done it with Rupert's cage plenty.
