What would cause a bloody nose and a fever?

I haven't been injured (that I know of).

They could be completely unrelated. The most common cause of nosebleeds is dry air drying out the blood vessels in your nose, rendering them easily broken, which causes the nosebleed.

A severe sinus infection would cause a bloody nose as well as a fever. Constant blowing the nose would rupture the membranes and any infection would raise the body temperature.

You may have a cold or sinus infection and have blown your nose hard. If you are travelling you may be reacting to low humidity or high altitude, but that does not fully account for your fever. Try a saline nasal spray to mosten the tissues.

First thing to pop in my head in response to those two symptoms is yellow fever. it could just be that you are sick and dried out the nasal membrane.

A fever indicates that there is an infection of some sort. A bloody nose is a sign of the blood pressure being high or it could be due to a change in your living environment, ie you moved from Georgia to Colorado where the altitude is extreme opposites. Also nose bleeds could be signs of tissue damage within the nose.
