What Does Bright Yellow Snot Mean
Mucus: Sounds like you have a yellow mucoid discharge from your nose, otherwise known as snot. This often occurs with a viral upper respiratory infection, the common cold. This should go away in a few days. It may also be a sign of a sinus infection, if you have had sinus pain for more than 10 days. Allergies may also produce a mucoid nasal discharge.See 1 more doctor answer

It depends: I assume from your question that your snot is a mixture of clear and yellow. This could be indicative of any number of things: rhinosinusitis, allergic rhinitis with possible early bacterial infection, nasal polyp, viral infections, or hyperactive nasal mucosa. I would suggest seeing your physician to further delineate the exact cause in light of your medical history and physical exam.
Vaginal "snot": A vaginal discharge that comes from that orifice that does not itch or offends your nose (odor) is normal. And needs to be left alone to avoid more serious vaginal issues. Simply gently remove it if the vagina "blows its' nose".
Infection? STD?: There are many causes of vaginal discharge, and any new or abnormal discharge should be professionally evaluated, so see your doctor soon. With yellow color, mucus ("snot like"), and at your age of 18, this is likely chlamydia, gonorrha, or other STD, assuming you are sexually active. It might not be serious, but don't take chances. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer

Not much: The urine color typically reflects its concentration and contents. As long as there are no other symptoms, it isn't a big deal. The more concentrated the urine...The more yellow (typically). This is why urine is almost clear after hitting the bottle too hard as it really dilutes the urine.
Possible urinary: Tract infection. You need to get checked out by your physician.
Dehydration?: See your doctor to find out the cause of your nausea and get treated for it. When the nausea goes away you take more fluid in and color improves.
Post nasal drip: During the night, significant amounts of mucus can collect in the upper airway, back of the throat/nose. Upon awakening, the body's response is to expel this mucus to clear the airway. When mucus is exposed to air it is oxidized (turns yellow or green). If it stays discolored, think of infection, if it goes clear during day, think allergy. An allergist can assist in diagnosis and treatment.
Enough B1 and B2: Vitamins B1 and esp. B2 have a yellow color so bright yellow urine suggests enough B1 and B2. But B3, 5, 6, 12 and folate aren't yellow and you might still have inadequate levels of those. Many have difficulty absorbing B12. Nearly half of people have trouble metabolizing folic acid and need the L-5_MTHF form of folate. Fasting blood homocysteine can indicate if you have enough B6, B12 and folate.
