How urgently do I need to see a doctor?

YANMD. You may not even be a doctor. I was out on a 10 mile run this morning; at the end of the run, I realized that I had blood dripping down both my legs, stemming from a mole on my inner left thigh.

Aside from the complete embarrassment of running for almost two hours looking like I had some sort of menstruation accident, how concerned should I be about this? I have had some moles removed in the past for cosmetic reasons, but I've never had one that changed color, size, etc. The blood was coming from a mole that looks perfectly normal in size, shape, etc.
It was still bleeding after I took a shower and cleaned up, but seems to not be bleeding now under a Band-Aid.
I will eventually get this checked out, but do I need to do it now? I'm just under two weeks out from my marathon and don't have a ton of free time or money.
