I started off with just a cough and that turned

Patient : I started off with just a cough and that turned into wheezing and shortness of breath, like i couldnt get a deep enough breath when just simply walking from one room to another and coughing up phlegm a few days have past those symptoms have diminished and now i am coughing up what looks like pinkish "skin" covered in green phlegm. I wouldnt describe it as "hard" but it stays intact unlike tough phlegm that ypu can smash apart and there feels like there is a knot in the back of my throat along woth a sore throat. What am I coughing up and what shluld i do? Thank you!
