Brief Answer:
Can be due to many causes.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
The flushed cheeks since morning can be due to rosacea, allergies, hot flushes due to hormonal changes, fever, inflammation, etc. It can happen due to heavy covers during sleeping also. In case the flushing subsides in few hours then it is not likely to be worrisome. Otherwise do consult a dermatologist for proper examination to fin d the cause.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
