Hi.As you forced yourself to vomit,due to trauma Blood might have mixed with saliva.Nothing to worry.It subsides spontaneously.Please dont repeat this at trauma may lead to injury to sensitive tissues.Blood coming from mouth mixed with saliva has nothing to do with Sputum and X ray chest.These investigations are needed only when then there is Coughing of blood(Haemoptysis),not blood vomiting(Haematemesis).All the best.
