I am not sure if it is plasma or red blood cells that includes parts that aid in blood clotting

Plasma includes parts that aid in blood clotting. These parts are platelets. Plasma is the liquid component of blood, in which the red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets are suspended.Platelets help in the clotting process by gathering at a bleeding site and clumping together to form a plug that helps seal the blood vessel. At the same time, they release substances that help promote further clotting.

thank you so much, sorry for asking that question it just really confuses me when it comes to red blood cells and plasma but the way you explained it makes sense since plasma contains blood clotting parts.
