Do you have any other symptoms like fever, night sweats or weight loss?

For how long have you been having cough and blood stained sputum ?

A clear chest x ray is a good sign. Bronchitis is the commonest cause of blood in cough so if there are no alarm symptoms as i mentioned above, you are likely to be having this because of bronchitis which is very common with smokers.

You can take capsule transamine to help with this.
