Hello,

In a sinus infection,it can be normal for sputum to be bloody.
This is caused by the inflammation of
the lining of sinuses which can cause bleeding.

I suggest you to treat sinusitis,which can prevent bloody sputum.
Some advices that I can give to you are :
-take prescribed antibiotics, discuss with your doctor about this treatment
-use saline nasal sprays for relief

-gargle with salty water
