For years, sometimes after i sleep I have very small amount of mucus in lungs/throat. Not short of breath lying down or otherwise. Normal? Allergy?

In brief: Reflux?

Check for reflux disease causing irritation of the throat after lying down.

In brief: Hard to know

Mucous can accumulate in your upper airways due to post-nasal or sinus discharge dripping down, you may have irritation from acid reflux, allergic reactions, etc.
Doubt that this is particularly serious absent other symptoms, but if it disturbs you see a doctor and get evaluated. Good luck.
