Blood, foul.

My two little ladies have been living together since October and have scuffles but never anything serious and certainly never blood. (one white, one black)

I put an apple core in the cage, ten minutes later I heard a LOUD squeak. Didn't really think anything of it.

Went over there now, it's been about an hour, and one rat (white rat) has blood on her nose. Can't tell whose blood it is right now (or who was the biter or the bite-ee).

Is everything okay? Should I be concerned?

Hydrogen peroxide must always be diluted as with full-strength it actually kills the cells.
For small wounds you can use neosporin. For wounds on the head I usually leave alone so that they don't groom and get it in their eyes/nose.
