OK--most likely you have a sinus infection with postnasal drip and the blood is from your sinuses. Even if you don't have a stuffy nose or drainage from the nose, that's likely the problem here. I'd suggest you have a doctor look at you because it sounds as though you'll need antibiotics to clear this
