I think this cough is because of a bacterial infection in the airway. The blood you observed in the last two days is because of rupture (caused by cough) in the tissues.

I think, you should consult a doctor. He may prescribe you arithromycin (antibiotic).

I agree, you need to see a doctor. If the blood is coming from your lungs, it could indicate a serious infection, like pneumonia or even TB. Insist on a chest x-ray or a chest CT. Ask about a TB test, too (it's really simple). Don't delay on this. The longer you wait, the worse the infection could get.
