Yellow mucus & eye: You should have your ENT or primary doctor examine you.

When i breath in or out i taste blood in my mouth but there isn't any, and when i cough i feel like i'm coughing up blood but i'm not. Why is that?
Puzzler: If you taste blood but there is none, perhaps you are experiencing a metallic taste, which many describe blood to taste like.
