Hmm sounds serious: Who told you that you have blood clots in your lungs? I would ask the person who told this to you. Blood clots in the lungs usually means -pulmonary embolus - go look that up. I hope you made an error in listening.

Clots where?: A hemorrhagic pneumonia or other processes like TB or cancer can cause one to cough up blood, but blood clots in the lung often is used to describe pulmonary embolism -- clots in the blood vessels.
