You need to review with your doctor and get a chest xray and preferably a blood test done.

This could be blood from your nose, throat, teeth and the exact cause and site needs to be identified.

Was it fresh blood? Was it mixed with mucus or sputum? Was there any associated cough? Do you have any dental problems?

You probably would need a change of medications too.

Let us know what your doctor advvises and keep us psoted on how you are doing.

Hope this helps.
