Firstly...: Do you currently have a cold or sinus infection? That can cause a foul odor in any secretions. A foul odor can also be coming from your teeth/gums, your diet, and/or acid reflux. Do not drink mouthwash.. Will not help and will only make you sick. You need to be physically examined by both your physician and dentist to rule out any of the above possibilities.

Mucus: See your doctor to rule out a possible sinus infection.

Infection: May be a sinus or throat infection, virul, bacterial, and/or fungal. Probably not Dental in origin. See yourhysician. May be prudent to be referred to an ENT Specislist.
