Blood in the semen and during sex is caused by infections along the ejaculatory tract, usually in the seminal vescicles.

In most cases, these infections are very minor and resolve sponatneously. It may also be caused by some mild, unnoticed trauma, such as during cycling, etc. You do not need to worry much about it, it should disappear on its own.

You should give it time, about a week to 10 days, by which time is should have disappeared. However, if it persists beyond that time, if it increases within that time or new symptoms like pain appear, then you need to consult a doctor for this. You are likely to need antibiotics for this.
