In brief: See below.

The causes of blood in the saliva can be from the mouth, throat or even lower down in the intestinal or respiratory tract.
You should speak with your doctor and be examined to find out for sure.

In brief: Blood in mouth

We cannot tell you where the blood is coming from. You need to be seen and have an exam to determine that.
It could be from your broken tooth, gums infection or many other things. See your dentist and primary care doctor to find out what is going on.

You may need to see an ENT as well. Make sure you get a chest X-ray as well

In brief: Many possibilities..

You're asking where the blood came from, right? Can't tell over the internet.
Your gums may be inflamed, food may be getting trapped in that broken tooth, further irritating the gums, could be from your other conditions. Your physician and dentist will need to rule things out, one at a time. Please call for appointments.
