If clots are there in sputum it could be due to various reasons one of them is TB. Did u get TB before or have taken treatment. Both are the reasons of bleeding. Bleeding can be due to some gastric bleed.. If there is fresh blood..it is something to worry. What I advice is x-ray chest PA view and gastric endoscopy to rule out the etiology
