You should tell your doctor. It’s usually a symptom of iron deficiency and will need to be investigated.

Also try not to eat coal as its really really bad for you.

You could also visit a nutritionist (not a dietitian). These people are better trained than a doctor to help you resolve missing nutrients in your diet.
