Green nasal secretio: Haveing green nasal secretions for over two weeks may be due to an infection in the nose or sinuses. It is best to see your pediatrician for an examination to determine the cause and to get proper treatment.

Probably Not Serious: Dr pizzo's answer is correct. However the "greenness" is not always indicative of infection. Allergic rhinitis can have green drainage as can a foreign body in the nose. See your doctor.
