I am really wheezy and coughing up sputum today. Can I use an extra ventolin dose here and there?

In brief: Yes

Yes you can - but it is highly recommended that you discuss this with a physician who may be able to figure out if your current medication regimen is appropriate.
When an exacerbation of asthma is present ventolin can be used every 4 hours or so, but notifying your doctor is a great idea.
