One of my chicks has blood (spotty) and it looks like worms in her poop
How old are your chicks? It would be unusual for chicks to have worms, but not impossible, i suppose. It certainly sounds like worms, but bloody poop can also mean Coccidiosis. Many vets will do a fecal float for you at minimal cost, and that would be where I would start. Don't delay, though.
Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us!
My chicks are 2-3 weeks old
You can try posting over on this thread, maybe someone can help you out:
Be sure to provide as many details as possible to help id the problem.
Good luck to you and your chick!
A vet can determine if your chick has worms, coccidiosis or other concerns. He can also give you the proper treatment. If one chick has a problem - generally all are treated so they don't infect or reinfect each other.

PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ! she is one of my new chickies and I cannot have her die my grown chickens have recently died from a coon and something else. I only have two left someone please help
Try some medicated chick starter. Or Amprolium in the water. She might have coccidiosis. All the chicks can have the feed. If that is what it is, you should see improvement fairly quickly.
we are giving them medicated chick starter/ grower but the medicine or what ever is in it in pellets not crumbles so and they cant eat the pellets they are way to little
