Usually facial injuries will lead to bleeding inside the nose and resulting blood collection inside paranasal sinuses. Eventually that blood will be transported back to the throat and will. Come out as clots while coughing. For all practical purposes it is normal after blunt facial injury
Next Steps
Consult nearby ENT specialist for confirmation of diagnosis and appropriate treatment if required
