Hi,

As such there can be many causes of bleeding you describe.

It can be from oral cavity from gum diseases etc

It can be from Gastro-intestinal system due to ulcer in stomach or duodenum.

It can be from respiratory system.

I do think he needs detailed checkup and investigations like

Chest X-ray

Dental checkup

Barium study/endoscopy etc

He should be seen by his doctor for further diagnosis and management.
