    Hello DF

    It might mean "blood certainly", e.g.

    1. Blood sure is red = blood certainly is red.

    Or a coinage that means "as sure as blood":

    2. The pact between us is blood-sure = the pact between us is sealed in blood.

    Or a typo for "bloody sure" ("bloody" is a mild and slightly old-fashioned British intensifier):

    3. I'm bloody sure that didn't happen = I am very sure that didn't happen.

    Do you have more context?
