Hi, yesterday I was putting coal into our stove fire

Patient : Hi, yesterday I was putting coal into our stove fire when the flames started to get too big. So I opened it to reduce the flames by putting some bread soda on the fire but a few times smoke came into the room when I opened the door. I did not inhale this but there was some smoke in the room after and now I have a cough with white phlegm. I am just worried about CO poisoning, I got plenty of fresh air and have no other symptoms only a slight cough. I do have asthma and maybe the smoke caused the cough because of this? This happened 17 hours ago.
