What you describe, with somewhat limited information, could be due to either the heart or the lungs.  Examination of your heart and lungs especially if you have a history of either heart or lung disease, examination of the mucous since it can be clear with either condition, and a chest x-ray should enable your doctor to answer your question and prescribe the appropriate therapy.
