sorry you have this cough and mucus production

yes, you could have pneumonia or bad bronchitis

you need to see a doctor and get a chest xray and sputum culture to check for bacterial infection in your lungs

you may need a course of antibiotics and cough medications and mucinex and steroids to help your symptoms.

you can see your primary care doctor or a doctor at the ER or urgent care center.
