In brief: Both...

The most common cause of coughing blood, called hemoptysis, is bronchitis.
But, there are many other conditions that can cause hemoptysis including malignancy. Therefore, hemoptysis is a symptom that always requires an evaluation by your doctor so that the correct treatment can be rendered once the diagnosis is made.
