One duckling is trying to hatch I think... but it’s not chirping yet. I think it might have gotten step on by the mother duck and not actually ready to hatch. What do I do? Do I help it out or just leave it in the nest?

Blood is a bad sign. It needs time to absorb all of the blood so don't open it up any more. If you have an incubator you can put it in there to finish hatching but make sure it's the right temp and high humidity.
