Are you talking abut red that may be blood?

Take the bird to an avian vet for assessment to find out what is going on.

This can be a sign of infection, but I don't know why it would come and go without an avian vet prescribing medicine.

I would ask your avian vet about this, because he/she can see the bird and would be able to know what is going on.
