The funny thing is , there is only one pump, one zone, one thermostat . Small 2 bedroom apartment.
Any other room is working without any problem, just that bedroom is cold.

Ayuh,... Then bleed it out,... It's probably air-bound...

You may need to add water to the system. This can be an iterative (back and forth) process, add a little water, bleed a little air, add a little water, etc.

Baseboard radiator air valves don't have room for a large pocket of air so as the system becomes nearly filled with water, it can require waiting a few hours before opening the bleed valve again.
