if you can feel mucus go up and down your chest when you breathe in and out does that mean your chest is very congested ?

Yes, it sounds: Like chest congestion, probably bronchitis or even pneumonia. Stop smoking, use a hot steam vaporizer, and go see a doctor if you have fever or if congestion persists more than several days. And don't forget to get flu vaccine. Good luck.
