See a physician: Coughing blood is something that needs to be treated asap. She has an infection, which may be secondary to her flu and should be evaluated to determine the best treatment protocols.

Pulled muscle likely: To sort this out completely would require a physical examination, but you probably injured your rib cage in some way during a coughing spell. Such injuries are not rare and usually heal on their own, in time. An inflammation on the outer lining of the lung (pleurisy) is another possibility. The bloody phlegm is a concern. It may simply be due to bronchitis, but have your doctor check it out. ...Read more

As long as you are not getting worse after the miserable first five days or so you will continue to gradually improve. If this is influenza it helps to understand why flu shots are recommended. ...Read more
