Q: What does bloody mean?
A: "Bloody" is a mild swear word that is used to give emphasis (make stronger) to another word. For example:

I read the bloody book. = I read the BOOK.
I thought it was bloody awful. = I thought it was AWFUL.
Q: What does bloody hell  mean?
A: Bloody hell is a term that most British people use. Americans don't really use this term, as obviously, we're not British people. Most British people use this as a way to swear, but they aren't really swearing. It's like taking a swear word in your language and replacing the word 'bloody' with it.

Example-
A: Bloody hell!
B: What? What's wrong?
A: That guy just bumped into me!

For instance, take the word "fuck".

A: Fucking hell!
B: What? What's wrong?
A: That guy just bumped into me!

That's just one example. Again, only British people do this, I think. The only time you'll hear a person who is not British with no British accent is if they're just simply mocking British people. Also, this phrase is to no be used every single time when conversing. This is to express something.
Q: What does bloody mean?
A: Mocking is to make a joke on someone in order to be weird, bad. Bloody itself has often the meaning of something really bad.

For example:

I had a bloody day.

It means that I had a terrible/worse day.

Literally, it means that you bleed during the day.


And you're welcome^^

The difference is that bloody, bleeding and blooming aren't considered swear words or very offensive, whereas fucking definitely is.
