Tuberculosis is one cause of coughing up blood but there many others and they can exist anywhere within the entire respiratory system, from the nose/mouth to the lungs.  High blood pressure may contribute to bleeding but it is almost never the main cause.

When it is demonstrated that the blood is not coming from his nose, throat, sinuses or the mouth itself and his Chest X-ray is normal it may be necessary to have his lungs examined by a doctor using an instrument called a bronchoscope.

One more comment.  Sometimes when blood is coughed up it is coming from the intestinal tract and not the respiratory tract, a good thing to keep in mind if the examination of his breathing system proves to be completely normal.

Your Father needs a more complete examination than just having a doctor look in his mouth and throat, preferably by a lung specialist.

Do not delay in seeking help

Good luck
