I'm pregnant and have sore throat, mucus, and aches. Probably just a cold. What medicine is safe to take besides tylenol (acetaminophen)? Robitussin?

In brief: The most important

Thing is monitoring your situation including fever , chills, coughing up purulent sputum , difficulty swallowing etc.
In such situation , see your doc. If symptoms are getting better and as you say it is just a cold , tylenol (acetaminophen) for symptom control and some lozenges would be just fine
