Is this a new symptom of the virus just a side effect from coughing hard and often?

Can be either.

If it is from coughing too much, as opposed to lung lesions, the blood will come from the throat area.

Lung lesions are reported as part of the symptom set for the virus. They do manifest as bloody cough.

I presume mri, cat scans and x-rays can distinguish between causes.
Absence of proof is not proof of absence.
