Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome To Ask A Doctor Service
I have gone through your question, I understand your concern.
It could be minor local mucosal eruption in throat leading to bleeding.
If no more similar episodes, then nothing to worry.
Otherwise get chest xray done to rule out infection.
I hope your query is clear now.
Thanks and regards
