What you have may be the common cold but the “green chunky stuff” suggests otherwise; suggests that you may have a bacterial infection, possibly including your sinuses with post-nasal drip or sputum coming from your lungs (bronchitis).  This infection may require antibiotic therapy for rapid resolution.

Good luck
