Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking at healthcaremagic.
I carefully read your question and understand your concern.

If you are having headachecfor more than a week or have yellow-green secretions from your nose for longer than a week or fever for more than 4 days with the headache and secretions than antibiotics might be considered. Your doctor after examining you and if he thinks you have bacterial sinusitis would prescribe you augmentine if you don't have allergy to that.

Meanwhile nose lavage (several times a day) and ibuprofen\paracetamol will help with pain.

As for the secretions being with blood: if it is little blood mixed with saliva like stipes of blood probably there is nothing to worry. If clear blood brought up not like few stripes of blood than you will need a visit to find the source of it and why it is happening.

Inflammation of the nose and throat might cause some blood stripes with saliva but anything else needs more medical attention.

I hope this is helpful and answers to your question but please feel free to reply in case more clarification is needed on this.

Kind regards,
