Small amount of blood in the sputum can come because of violent coughing which can rupture small blood vessels in the upper respiratory tract. Usually it will resolve on its own. You can try using mucolytics and steam inhalation.
Next Steps
Consult nearby ENT specialist for confirmation of diagnosis and appropriate treatment if required
