Bleeding gums

Q: I have bleeding gums when I sleep. When I wake up the towel I put on my pillow has some drool on it, sometimes its clear, sometimes orangey yellow. When I spit to check, the colour of the saliva is orangey yellow in colour but not red or pink. Is the towel impure? Also when drool comes out with blood and is red, I do not know if the saliva got on my beard or side of my face when I slept as there are patches on my towel where my mouth was. I have bad waswasas due to this. What do I do?

Bismillaah

A: If there are no traces of blood, then regard it to be pure.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

Q:

1) If it is yellowy orange do I regard it as blood?

2) I have heard if it is more yellow than red or pink then it is regarded as pure. Is this the case?

Bismillaah

A: If it is red, then it will be blood.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
