Get examined: go to your PCP or local UC clinic. If you have a tonsillar bleed this may be serious and certainly requires visualization and antibiotic therapy. Close your computer and get examined now.

No: Just gargle and clean your throat, finish your prescribed antibiotic, if bleeding doesn't stop, see your doctor or go to ER
