Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. too early to comment on that with just blood in hemoptysis when all your symptoms could possibly fit into some respiratory infection . Get evaluated , you will likely turn out to have some acute / chronic respiratory infection and they will prescribe you some antibiotics. However quitting smoking would be wise before it is too late.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.

Take care
