Accidently inhaled gold spray paint. Noticed blood while coughing. Throat hurts. Should I go for medical check up?

my wife unintentionally inhaled gold spray paint while spray painting some boxes on an enclosed screened in porch. She mentioned that she has been coughing and has coughed a little bit of blood . She can barely talk, she said her throat feels like sharp needles and it hurts. Is there anything that she should take? or should we take her to the emergency room? How do you treat this?
