Pt. X-ray report is suggestive of infection,send sputum for culture and sensitivity and also for T;B gram staining. How bad was haemoptysis, some times slight staying of sputum due To excessive coughing can be mistaken. if not sure take help of a chest specialist. Start abroad spectrum. Anti biotic don't go for steroids in case case turns out to be of TB. Again in India use steroid is very common for even trivial things.wait for report.
