How do I configure BIND to correct this issue?

I have Apache, PHP, and MySQL running on this desktop (Windows XP). The websites work correctly and have never caused any problems. Recently I decided I wanted to point www.thebloodyred.com to one of the websites I run on my webserver using BIND9. It works, except I get errors from http://www.checkdns.net. I believe these same errors are preventing me from running a mailserver under the program "hMailServer". First and foremost I'm interested in getting the errors presented to me fixed.

The errors are:

1. CheckDNS.NET checks if all NS have the same version
  Master DNS defined by SOA (ns1.thebloodyred.com.thebloodyred.com) was not found among NS records.
  All 2 your servers have the same zone version 2004041700

2. CheckDNS.NET is verifying if NS are alive
  NS list mismatch: registration authority reports that domain is hosted on the following servers: 'ns1.thebloodyred.com; ns2.thebloodyred.com', but DNS server ns1.thebloodyred.com reports domain to be hosted on 'ns2.thebloodyred.com.thebloodyred.com; ns1.thebloodyred.com.thebloodyred.com'. Please make sure that you configure the same DNS servers in registrar database and on your DNS

3. CheckDNS.NET tests mail-servers
  Domain thebloodyred.com has only one mail-server
  Checking mail server (PRI=10) mail.thebloodyred.com [75.132.178.93]
  Error connecting to mail server mail.thebloodyred.com [75.132.178.93] port 25 : timed out waiting for connection
  Some of your MX do not work properly

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I know it's bad to have both nameservers on the same physical machine, but I don't have more than one so it'll have to make due. I believe the problem is in my 127.0.0.rev or thebloodyred.com.zone files.

Change these lines:

@            NS      ns1.thebloodyred.com            
@            NS      ns2.thebloodyred.com  

To this:

@            NS      ns1
@            NS      ns2

Having the @ sign at the beginning means you don't have to have the FQDN.
