You might be suffering from acute viral upper respiratory tract infection with acute pharyngo-tonsillitis. This type of infection can lead to minimal blood in sputum because of rupture of small blood vessels while coughing. If your symptoms persist then you may need to undergo endoscopy for confirmation of diagnosis
Next Steps
Consult nearby ENT specialist for confirmation of diagnosis and appropriate treatment if required
