Welcome to ehealthforum

Blood in cough is not normal and signifies any lung infection which can be due to bacteria or viral in nature,allergy or any underlying lung disease.You require a detailed examination of lungs and investigations as Chest X ray which would help in making a precise diagnosis.
Consider visiting a Physician for detailed evaluation.
Take care
