hello and welcome to HCM,

I do understand your problem and shock especially when you see blood. But rest assured if it is just mixed with vomitus and does not increase then there is nothing to worry about. The pain can be due to a combination of reflux and possibly infection.
If your vomiting is controlled then you need to start on an antibiotic like amoxycillin-clavulanate 625mg twice daily after food fir five days along with pantoprazole-d 40 mg twice daily before food for two weeks.

Avoid spicy, oily and high flavored food and also do not have excess caffeine
You should feel better in a week; if you do not feel better you may need to consult an ENT to get an endoscopic examination done.

take care and do not strain
