Hi dear, if its within few days then nothing to worry- it might be due to dust or smoke. But, its better get your sputum checked. No need to panic.

Phlegm may get thicker and darker as an infection progresses or in the morning or if you are dehydrated or having fungal infection. Such discoloration may be temporary, caused by exposure to smoke or dirt in the air, or it could be due to respiratory infection.
Next Steps
Sputum examination, cbc, lft, rft, urine routine
Health Tips
1. Running a humidifier can help to moisten the air, which eases breathing, making it easier to cough and loosen up the phlegm that is stuck in the chest. 2. Eucalyptus or peppermint essential oils dilute in a little coconut or almond oil & rubbed on the chest & soles of ur feet and place thick socks. It may aid relaxation, improve breathing, and make coughs more productive to get the phlegm out. 3. Honitus losenzes
