You should be able to feel the strings protruding from your cervix. If you are worried see the doctor or nurse and get it checked.

Can the iud string come off and fall out of you?

Because it is securely attached to the IUD, an IUD string is unlikely to fall out.

A missing string can mean the IUD fell out without you knowing, but typically the string just moved up into the cervix.

Is it normal if you having a bleeding after a week of period even if you have IUD?

Yes, it can be perfectly normal. You mention an IUD, if this is a hormonal IUD that you've just had inserted this may be the reason for the longer bleed as it can take your body time to adjust to the hormones in the new IUD. It's also possible that the IUD has shifted so check your strings and feel for the bottom of the IUD through the cervical opening to make sure it's not moved. If concerned or if the bleeding continues go see your doctor or go to a sexual health clinic for more help.

You have an IUD and about four weeks ago you had a biopsy done on your cervix now you are 3 weeks pregnant is there any way that the doctor moved the IUD?

I would consult a health clinic and ask them to get a 2nd opinion. You will need to find a doctor that it is not in the same health system as they usually stick together. Alternately, get an ultrasound and find out if the IUD is at the fundus. If so, the doctor didn't move the IUD.
