In brief: Possibly

Or you may be getting over a cold.
As a cold improves the nasal secretions get thicker and a little yellow. If you are coughing up thick brown sputum with a deep cough i would be more concerned about a bacterial pneumonia or possibly bronchitis. Most bronchitis is viral and happens as the last part of a cold .If not improving see your doctor.

In brief: Infection.

.. These all point to infection. Whether the source is sinus or lungs, it's hard to say here on an online forum. Regardless our advice remains the same-- see your doctor for an evaluation, and to see if antibiotics might be needed. Go to urgent care if you don't have a doctor.
