Dr. Murray Grossan
Specializes in ENT and Head and Neck Surgery
Otitis Media: This sounds like a middle ear infection. Are you on antibiotics? Are you on antibiotic ear drops. Two days is not time enough to clear a middle ear infection - takes 7 to 14 days, if the medications are effective.

Absolutely!: You didn't mention what medicine she's on, but if she has a new symptom (bloody mucus), it's time to see the Dr. again.
