How often you notice blood and how much? Is it a fresh blood? Do you have any other symptoms? Any oral or dental problem? Any known lungs or stomach problem? Do you see blood when you brush your teeth?

blood on my tongue has happened twice. It is fres bright red blood. I do have gingivtis and am under a dentist care for that. Yes I do see blood when I brush my teeth.

Based on the information, the most likely cause of your blood in mouth is gingivitis. Gingivitis can cause bleeding very easily and they are fresh blood. I don't see any other symptoms to relate this bleeding to lungs or stomach problem. I also see that you are being taken care for gingivitis, which will certainly resolve your problem gradually.
