Hello
I am Dr Ravinder Sharma ENT surgeon
On the basis of the information provided it appears that possibily there is a mass lesion or a bleeding point in nose causing minimal ooze giving a smell of blood but as such there is no blood discharge. This is a probable cause and i would advise you for a ENT consultation and a diagnostic nasal endoscopy for the diagnosis.

I hope this answers your concern. Feel free to contact me if you require more information about it

Thanks for the follw up query
Headache may be related to it ( example - sinus headache) or may not be related to it (Migranie headache). The ENT evalaution and some tests will help us to reach the diagnosis.

I hope this answers your concern. Please let me know if I can hep you further in this
