I got some good news and bad news.
Is it natural to leave out the "some"?
I'm not a teacher, but I would say "I got bad and good news" :)
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
You can leave out "some" in my opinion but I would use "have" not "got".
I have good news and bad news.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

I went to see my doctor today, to get my test results. I got some good news and some bad news.
