Surely U had infection of pharynx and Middle Ear when u visited. The pus in the middle ear would discharge if it is already in a state of mounting pressure behind the drum. iTs natural to get blood stained pus during such instance. More over the hearing will be dull for 10 to 15 days after the pain and infection subsides, which may be because of secretions behind the drum. Ussually they resolve spontaneously
If hearing loss persists more than few weeks, then conuslt ur ENT back
