My two (ish) year-old female fancy rat started bleeding from her vagina about three days ago. It stopped yesterday, but today, she is bleeding a lot and very swollen. We are taking her to the vet tomorrow, but I’m worried about the amount of blood she’s losing. What should I do until tomorrow?

It sounds like she has either a uterine tumour which has ruptured or a pyometra (infection) - either way she needs to be spayed asap, I'd move your appointment forward to today if you can.
