If you were coughing up frank blood, they wouldn't have sent you home.  What you're seeing is probably rust-colored sputum which, although it looks scary, is very common with pneumonia.  Lots of fluids, lots of rest, take your meds, keep an eye on your blood sugar and you'll be feeling better soon.
