No, you run the risk of damaging your new pierce if you are hit or knocked and it is safer not to play for a while until its fully healed and you can take it out for the ~hour it takes to play, just be sure to put it back in as soon as you're done playing. And if the ref notices it, he/she will ask you to take it out immediately or keep you out of the game.

Is bleeding during cartilage piercing normal?

A little bleeding is to be expected with cartilage piercings, the incision in the cartilage needs to be larger than the jewellery gauge going into the piercing, this is to allow the skin to heal between the jewellery and the cartilage. Excessive bleeding is an indication your piercer didn't candle the cartilage before doing the piercing to see where the veins are located on both sides of the cartilage.
