I think you need to see your physician........
when your mucus is brown/red or green its a clear sign to go see a doctor. Green/yellowish in color = bacterial infection, though that is not the sole indicator, least that I've heard.
The coughing could be rupturing capilaries which is causing the bleeding, it could be from bronchitis, or any other type of inflamation but the only way to be sure is to take the first step and see your physician.
Every fall I get mycroplasma pneumonia that starts as nasal congestion then travels into my lungs but usually I cough up green stuff if I get that far..this year I got on the biotics early and didnt get any of the green goo.
