Two of my chicks, the barred rocks, have these round dried bloody stump like things between their belly and vent. Is this like a belly button of sorts, where they were attached to the egg? Is it normal to be like this?

Yes, it's not like right on the vent, about a centimeter towards the belly.

Do I need to worry??

You're right, it's basically a belly button. Once in a while one will get infected, so you might want to just keep an eye on it. You will know there is a problem if you see pus or redness or swelling - it will be obvious. Most likely it will just try up and fall off like an ordinary scab.
