I had a right hemi and after a day in the hospital I started bleeding. I understand this was a leak caused by the surgery. I couldn't eat the first few days (no appetite) and just drank water, and the output, like you mentioned was dark red in colour. I was in the hospital for 6 days and it had pretty much cleared up by the time I left, without any intervention. So my bleeding lasted about 5 days, which is about where you are now.
It seem they discharged you, knowing of this problem, so did they give you any instructions? As others have said - let your doctor know if there is no improvement.
