In brief: See your doctor...
Usually coughing blood, called hemoptysis, is caused by bronchitis but it can also be due to malignancy.
See your doctor as soon as possible since you will need testing to determine the etiology. The sooner the diagnosis is made, the sooner effective treatment can begin. If you smoke, you need to quit and your doctor can also help with this! good luck!

In brief: No worries
If one time... No worries.
. If it persists... See your primary care or a local ENT who can use a camera to look down your throat.
