Brief Answer:
This can be either blood from mouth or from Lung.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on HCM.
Blood in spitting is mostly seen in diseases of either oral cavity (mouth) or lungs.
So you need to consult dentist to rule out oral pathology.
Get done chest x ray to rule out lung pathology.
So please let me know
