Brown saliva, bleeding inside lips, dark mucus from nose, clogged nose. Causes for symptoms?

hello, good morning. I have a question. I wake up every morning spitting brown spit, inside my lips I have blood . I have suffered from my nose always being runny and dark mucus . My nose is always clogged up, I cant smell anything. I have been trying to get treatment but none has been able to cure me completely. What does this mean? Why is my spit in the morning dark?

A dark spit generally means blood, that is altered with time.
Long history of nose problem and morning symptoms suggest possible post nasal discharge at night.
since it is going on for long time, you must have it investigated - you need X-ray chest and sinuses (may be a CT scan of paranasal sinuses). You need blood tests - to exclude minor bleeding diathesis etc.
You ought to see ENT specialist
Good luck
Take care
