Fever, stuffy nose but feels dry, sore throat, feeling of big snot ball with blood coming out of nose on blowing. What could this be?

I have been sick for the past two days. My symptoms have been fever , nose feeling stuffy however it felt dry and I was not able to blow my nose, and a sore throat . Early today I was on the phone and I felt like something was in the back of my throat. When I got off the phone I tried to cough it up but there was nothing. When I went to blow my nose I felt like there was a big snot ball coming out. However when I looked at it, it was not normal. It looked like there was blood but there was no blood coming off when I wiped it. I thought maybe cartilage but I am not sure. This only happened with one nostril . There is a slight pain and I am still able to smell. Should I be concerned and what could this be?

you need not to be worried it seems to be just the hard crust which formed and as u tried to blow hard and because of dryness it is in the colour you see. besides your other symptoms seems to be of viral infection which will pass off within 5-6 days meanwhile take proper rest, steam inhalation, with medication.
