Hello, thank you for consulting with healthcaremagic.
It looks that you are having gum infection, as it causes bleeding from gums. So it can be possible that this blood is from gums only which you are noticing in saliva.
Better that once you should visit a dentist and cleaning of gums done.
Hope it will help you.
