See a doctor: If you have fever and are coughing up mucous and blood you should go and be seen immediately, to an er if necessary. If this is related to strep throat you have the potential to have a life-threatening condition. Please go now and i hope this turns out to be only a minor issue, but do not gamble. Good luck.
