Get it checked.: Blood from any body site is a danger signal and should be checked. However in your case it may be from inflamed nasal passages with post nasal drip, inflamed gumbs, inflamed tonsils etc but you would most likely have symptoms. This is definitely something you should discuss with your doctor. Please get checked by your physician!

Maybe nothing: If you have had a hard cough for several days you could have irritated your bronchial mucosa and are getting flecks of blood in the mucous. If it gets worse or continues after the cough see your doctor. Usually it is nothing and is a result of "trauma"- either vomiting or hard coughing- and clears up in a few days.

My 9 year old son is spitting mucus with blood in the morning. There is no coughing, or fever, and no one in the house smokes. Thank you?

Other symptoms?: Is he having nasal congestion, sneezing as well? At this age is very common to have nasal irritation and capillary fragility which can cause some blood in nose that he could spit in the mornings due to the position of his head while sleeping. Very common with the cold weather. However, if he is having cough and symptoms happen during the rest of the day he needs to see his doctor for formal exam.

Not a big concern: If he has had a cold or cough with mucous he could have had a small blood vessel tear and hawk up the blood. It is a concern if he continues to do so. Then I would have him seen.

I was sleeping woke up to a cough with something in my mouth I spit out a jelly like glob of blood. No mucus?

Something bled: The most common cause of coughing up blood is bronchitis, for the throat is so raw it bleeds. That would go away on its own. But, if you have not been coughing, other things can cause blood to collect in your throat, like nose bleeds. Once you get moving, you bring the blood up. It should stop happening after a few days. If it is heavy bleeding, or doesn't stop, you should seen a doctor.

Can I get any sort of STD if someone spit in my drink? For example if the spit/saliva had blood or mucus in it.

Unlikely: I could probably construct a scenario in which this could occur, but the structure would be so weird that it would make a science fiction story. My question is why you would drink anything after somebody spit in it?
