In brief: See a doctor
Coughing up blood is not something to take lightly.
It can mean a number of things, but you should seek medical attention right away so they can determine the cause.

In brief: Hemoptysis....
The most common cause of coughing blood, called hemoptysis, is bronchitis.
However, this symptom always needs to be seen by a doctor because malignancy can also lead to hemoptysis. So, see your doctor asap. If you smoke, you need to quit today to decrease airway inflammation.
