Is consuming blood bad?
I sometimes tear off my lips and a bit of blood comes out and I put my tongue on it and swallow it. It is a kind of habit.

The Maasai tribe, of southern Kenya and northern Tanzania, regularly drink cow blood and are very healthy. I'd be concerned about the transmission of disease however if I were to regularly ingest blood.
As for a bit of your own blood, I wouldn't be concerned. It's the regular tearing of your lip that would be more concerning as a habit.

A little bit won't hurt any.

Swallowing small amounts of our own blood for various reason like a nosebleed for instance.
It will do you no harm.

not if it's your own blood
