Hi, guys. New gardener. I have two varieties of high bush blueberries that I'm growing. Each are about a year old. They're both showing some redening of a few stems and some red on the leaves. Additionally, there's some damage to the stems...splitting or spotting that I don't THINK is from insects (but I have no real idea). I'm hoping it's manageable and not some type of blight. But, any guidance would be helpful.

From the first photo, Your pH may be too high. Blueberries need a pH of 5 or less. Check and if too high use a soil acidifier..
