Constant nose bleeds can be an indication of something serious, but since you have a cold, it's probably just cold-related trauma. Be sure to keep your nose moist with a saline spray (such as Ocean spray). Dryness can make you prone to nose bleeds.
Also, take care when blowing your nose. Although it may feel like you need to blow really hard, this often doesn't help, and will just aggrevate the nose bleeds. Use a nasal decongestant to help loosen things up, too.
