Blood in phlegm only in the morning?

The past few days I’ve been sick and have been coughing up a lot of phlegm (my only symptoms are coughing, the phlegm and sometimes a little headache). The past two morning when I wake up There is a little blood when I spit up the phlegm, only in the morning and after I spit once or twice it stops. Is there a reason it’s in the morning and only in the morning? Going to a doctor in a few days (Friday).

    Irritated sinus tissue tends to bleed, more then likely that is what you are seeing. They have saline sprays and gels to help with it, many also use petroleum jelly
