The chronic nasal inflammation that causes post-nasal drip can also occur the nasal tissues to bleed more readily than they would otherwise.  That is probably was happened but if bleeding recurs, you should arrange for a doctor’s examination; ideally a doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the Ear Nose and Throat (ENT).  You could then, also discuss treatment of the post-nasal drip.

Good luck
