In brief: Maybe

Blood could come for your lungs or your GI tract.
If you are vomiting as opposed to coughing it is more likely the bleeding is coming from your gastrointestinal tract. That being sad a lung cancer could erode into the GI tract and cause the vomiting of blood. If you retch to hard from vomiting, you could have a tear of your esophagus that could bleed. If you do vomit blood, you should see a doctor.
