Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Cold and/or cough for 10 days or more needs investigation.
Blood stained mucus from nose demands the same - You should have X-ray chest and sinuses, blood counts and so on.
You may need a good broad spectrum anti-biotic / for the sinus, it should preferably cover anaerobic organism also.
See your GP - he will start symptomatic treatment and simultaneously start the tests.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
