In brief: Smoke what?

Seems common sense would dictate you don't smoke any more, period.
It isn't healthy at all. Neither cigarette, pipe, cigar or marijuana smoke is healthy. Visit your doctor to be sure the hemoptysis (coughing up blood) has a benign cause.

In brief: NO, you need to quit

Coughing up blood, called hemoptysis, is a serious symptom which always requires a medical evaluation.
You may have hemoptysis due to bronchitis (common diagnosis) but you need to rule out malignancy. If you continue to smoke, you will inflame your airways further resulting in worsening of symptoms. You need to see a doctor asap to diagnose and treat the cause of your hemoptysis.
