my nose is bleeding, will i lose my sense of smell?

I'm having a cold, and might have been clearing my nose a bit too strongly, some blood came out of my left nostril(but I couldn't see a cut inside my nostril.)

will I lose my sense of smell(permanently) in the left part of my nose?

any answers and advice appreciated.

I don't really think so...
Best bet is to stop blowing your nose if possible/minimise it.
Wait till your cold clears and test your ability to smell.
