Brief Answer:
Get done CBC and chest x ray.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
In my opinion, you should get done following things to identify the cause of bleeding.
1. CBC (complete blood count) because low platelets can cause bleeding from nose and throat.
2. Chest x ray because lung infection can cause bleeding in cough.
3. Blood pressure monitoring as hypertension can cause nose bleeding.
Please let me know if you are smoker.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
