Old Red is an NPC that sets up shops in the Gungeon, where he will sell items, guns and pickups. This merchant will sell blanks, armor and blank-related items, such as Ammolets. He starts appearing after being saved from a cell in the Gungeon Proper, Oubliette or Black Powder Mine. He states he is nearly blind, which would explain his name being Old Red, instead of Old Blue, and him mistaking the player for a bullet kin.
While this is likely, it is also very much possible that Old Red is the ghost of The Bullet's mentor, who looks identical to Old Red, except that he is gray (when a character dies in the game, they come back as a blue ghost. This is shown by Ser Manuel and Blockner's ghosts). The mentor dies in the beginning of The Bullet's past while giving The Bullet the wooden Blasphemy.
