Thank you for your question. It is difficult to diagnose a problem without a photo, and I'm not understanding whether the reddening is on the tips of the flowers or the leaves. Here is a link to an Extension article about various problems with hydrangeas, but it you don't see a photo of an identified issue that matches your plant, please send photographs: http://www.aces.edu/pubs/docs/A/ANR-1212/ANR-1212.pdf
