Yellow liquid coming from my nose

Hi,im a 16 year old male. Recently i just got over a cold that has been going around. And a day after my cold me and my buddies decided to have a wrestling night. When i was wrestling i was being choked out and i heard and felt a crack in the back lower of my neck. It didnt feel or sound right. And my neck and jaw and cheeks have hurt since(its been half a week). It was almost unbearable and it still has not stopped hurting. Over the past couple of days there has been a sort of fluorescent bright yellow/ greenish liquid that has the consistency of water that has drained from my nose. Sometimes in my right and sometimes in my left nostril. Should i be worried? Ive wrestled and boxed before and ive never felt anything like that crack/pull/tear in my neck before.Should i see a doctor? Please help

I would get a head and neck xray to see what's going on.

For all you know you could have cracked or broken something.

I think CSF is clear but still it sounds a bit scary.

(CSF = cerebral spinal fluid)

Yes, I would see a chiropractor, have some x-rays and get that neck fixed. What has probably happened is during the wrestling, that crack you heard was your vertebrae in your neck coming out of alignment, you ARE going to hurt big time until it gets fixed. Also, the yellow could be an infection, you may not have been entirely over your cold and the wrestling and the misalignment of your neck could have caused the cold to return.
