Hello and welcome to e health forum.

Appearance of blood just on appearance, does not give a clear indication of the medical condition.

But conditions that can decrease the viscosity of blood - include anemia, low hematocrit (less than 22.5%), low blood cholesterol and Low LDL levels, Hypoproteinemia and Low serum protein levels, etc.

You may wait for a complete blood test reports, which will give a more clear idea.

I hope this helps.
