I cut a mattress open now my lungs hurt?

I'll get to the point here I was cutting a mattress open and I got to the springs some kind of very thin foam filled the air I inadvertently inhaled some, I've been coughing pink phlegm up all night I seem to have gotten it all out but my right lung hurts still should I be concerned? I've drank orange juice to help me produce more phlegm to cough up more of that stuff but it still hurts.

Update:

It's not blood as far as I'm aware its very deep pink almost purple.

    Keep drinking orange juice if it doesn't improve the situation in 1-2 days then go see a doctor

    You do realise that orange juice goes to your stomach not your lungs?

      You do realize I'm not that stupid don't you? Of course it goes to your stomach, sweet drinks like orange juice increase your lungs production of phlegm which helps get stuff of your lungs.
