In brief: Not normal

Need to get an exam and chest x-ray.
If you smoke also a ct scan. If all is clear ask to see a pulmonologist.

In brief: Pulmonologist

It is not normal to cough up blood.
This is called hemoptysis. Hemoptysis may be the presenting symptom for lung cancer. Therefore must see pulmonologist to obtain a flexible bronchoscopy and obtain a cat scan thorax with and without contrast to try to identify the bronchus and the presence of a mass.
