I realize this may be one of those not stupid but stupid questions but I am so new to this and would really appreciate the help THANKS!!
Depends on the requirement of your printer. If you have a bleed inside of each page, it will show the opposite page of the same spread. If you don't want it, you have to set the bleed inside to 0.
If it is not a Wire-O-binding, it should not be a problem anyway, it it is, there are several workarounds.
