Cockatoo biting her blood feathers! Why?!

Our almost 3 year old Umbrella Cockatoo Bimini who is very spoiled has just went through her first big giant molt. I just noticed that she has a bloody spot on her chest, and when I looked she had bitten her new blood feather to the point where it bled. I cannot tell at this point if she keeps bugging with it. What should I do? My vet said to keep an eye on it but it still makes me nervous because I am not sure what it is! Ahh!
