History should be taken thoroughly to be sure if it is haemoptysis /haematemesis or epistaxis. If you are sure of haemoptysis ,get a chest xray and gastric lavage for CBNAAT to rule out TB.

Only diagnosis will not help. Some vasoconstrictors should be used to check bleeding. Cause could be both pulmonary or extrapulmonary so plan accordingly.
