In brief: Anything

From simple bronchitis to cancer of lung--- in between pneumonia, tuberculosis, bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis, pulmonry edema etc.
Get checked with your doctor. At least you will need an x-ray.

In brief: Pneumonia

This could certainly be a bad infection.
...You need to be seen asap by doctor. If x-rays don't show anything and the bloody phlegm continues, i recommend a ct.
