Discolored sputum

revs11 posted:
I have the flu and have been coughing up sputum that has dark coloration, like a maroon color. I am already getting over the flu and feel better, but usually in the past when I've had the flu, the sputum was always clear or greenish.

Should I be concerned about this even though my symptoms are subsiding?

Thank you.
