Treated?: Were you diagnosed with it and treated appropriately? If so, the cough can linger for a few weeks, some months after the infection is treated. If you did not get it treated, go now, this is very contageous.

The source of the bleeding may be from the nasal/sinus passages, but if it continues I would follow up with your PCP. I agree that the effects of the illness may linger and treatment is indicated.
