In brief: Likely coughing...
If you have just recovered from a cold, then you are likely coughing.
If coughing is done forcefully, it can break a small blood vessel, showing up as blood-tinged sputum. Not to worry. However, if it's frankly quite bloody, then go to your doctor. It needs to be evaluated.
