Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Do you have any other complaints like weight loss?

Is there any history of contact with a case of tuberculosis?

Do you have any fever?

Blood in the sputum requires thorough examination and further investigations including a X ray chest to arrive at a diagnosis.

Nasal bleeding could be because of various causes. It could be because of nose picking, improper blowing of the nose or hypertension among various other causes. A local examination including blood pressure record is required to identify the cause.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
