Don't delay: Spitting up blood is NOT normal. Neither is just spitting blood.
you need to get to the bottom or source if this is more than a one time event. Maybe you bit your tongue. Who knows. But start with a visit to your GP and let them guide you from there. Feeling fine is no excuse to delay.

Spitting blood: Spitting blood is not normal, whether you feel fine or not. It’s usually a symptom.
See your physician and find the cause.
