Why I coughed up bright red blood and now a couple days later I coughed up what looks like a dark red blood clot?

In brief: Get evaluated

There are many details missing about your case.
However, coughing up blood, fresh blood and then clots of blood is dangerous. You need to get evaluated. Go to see your doc asap, hopefully you can bring in the clots to show. Tuberculosis, cancer, abscess, malformations, fistulas can be the underlying cause. Treatment is available, but you need a diagnosis first. Don't delay.
