My two boys have rsv and now i seem congested and my phlegm i spit up is clear with blood tinged red could this be related?

Maybe,maybe not

Adults get RSV rather often but seldom have any lower airway problems like small babies.Their immune system has built up some resistance to the germ over time and an infection limited to the nose & throat are common. This may certainly make you have increased secretions but should not make them blood tinged.

sore throat coughing up phlegm and blood?

Need more info

Cough
My recommendation would be to see a doctor ASAP since coughing up blood never has a benign cause. On the other hand it would be helpful to know how long you have been ill, to whom you were exposed, whether you smoke, have fever, chills, nausea, shortness of breath, etc. Make a list of everything and take it with you to the doctor.

Blood mixed with sputum usually occurs with either bronchitis or pneumonia. Pure blood (hemoptysis) may be more concerning for other problems (heart disease, airway diseases, etc)
