In brief: See your doctor

It is best to get bloodwork and likely an endoscopy to evaluate further. It may be related to gastritis or esophagitis if vomiting any blood or an issue in the lungs if you're coughing it up.
The chest pain may be related to stomach, lung or heart issues but needs evaluauon. It is better to see your doctor to get a full evaluation.
