You seem to be suffering from an upper respiratory infection. The blood streak is due to the erosion of the mucous membrane when you cough to clear the mucus. You should take warm saline gargles, apply eucalyptus oil to your forehead to relieve the headache and use a vaporizer to liquefy the secretions. You should see a physician and may need to use some antihistamine to relieve the symptoms and pain killers to relieve the aches. Take care.
