Excessive phlegm after a cold

Patient : 3 weeks ago I had the cold with a sore throat. I never had a fever but had running nose and coughing. After a couple days, my sore throat was gone but I started coughing excessively and had transparent phlegm. But every once in a while when I spit the phlegm out, drops of yellow phlegm was seen. Now, after 3 weeks, I still have a very running nose and is stuffed. My coughs are still bad but not as frequent. I've taken Alka-Selter and still am. Should I see a doctor for antibiotics just in case?
