Blood spots in saliva usually on waking up with itching in throat, grogginess in voice, on Omeprazole. What could be causing this?

Hi, I have noticed blood spots in my saliva when I clear my throat in the mornings recently. Usually when it happens I wake up with my throat kind of scratchy and also my voice a little groggy in the mornings. I am 29 years old and had been diagnosed with H Pyloir infection but did not take the medication as the doctor mentioned I should start the medication when it gets a little cold . To prevent acidity I have been taking Omeprazole in the mornings. Other than this I am pretty physically fit and have no other health concerns. Would you be able to advise what is causing this? Any answers will be greatly appreciated.

Blood spot in the throat is not a clear indication of any particular event - there may a variety of reasons.
The source can be the gums, nose, throat or mouth - a look by you GP will help
It can be from the lungs - a chest X-ray may be needed
It can be from the stomach - if it was significant, you will have dark (tarry) stools.- stool must be tested for occult blood.
It doesn't sounds alarming - but it needs to be seen
God luck
