After sinus infection, is it normal for nose to bleed?

I had a bad cold with some sort of sinus infection that lasted 2 weeks. Now I am perfectly fine the cold is finally gone but I seem to have a slight red blood like spots in tissue paper when I wipe my nose. Looks like reddish transparent liquid. Not much. Is it because of my cold or is it something else?

This is caused by nasal mucosal dryness, small lacerations from congestion and the result of scab formation.
Scabs dry out, fall off, and cause residual bright pink disharge. Nothing to worry about. You just need to keep your nose humid. Use petroleum jelly or a nasal nebulizer.
