What causes blood leak from mouth?

blood in my mouth saliva after sleeping at night or day for the first several minutes after spitting. Blood is not really bright but also not dark. After sucking and spitting a few times and washing mouth with water it is disappearing and saliva becomes white. Is it from gums, lost couple month ago tooth? I am 72 years man. Thank you for your consideration and reasoning. Carl

Thanks for your query, i have gone through your query. the bleeding gums could be because of the gum infection secondary to the deposits over the teeth. consult a oral physician and get your teeth cleaned and maintain the oral hygiene by brushing your teeth twice daily. rinse your mouth thoroughly soon after eating anything. if the bleeding is from the tooth, then the tooth might be infected(pulp polyp) get the tooth treated with RCT or extraction. i hope my answer will help you. take care.
