it sounds like you have a bad viral or bacterial lung infection.

Dr. David :

you should go to your GP or to the A&E department at your local hospital to see a doctor.

you might need to go on a course of antibiotics to help fight this infection.

Is it normal to get blood in both sick and discharge in this kind of infection?

yes, you can get blood in the sputum when you have a bad viral or bacterial lung infection like bronchitis or pneumonia.

it sounds like you have a bad sinus infection as well.

I would see a GP doctor as soon as possible.

you need blood work to check your WBC white blood cell count.
