In brief: Lung infection

The symptoms you describe suggest a combination of infection with airway irritation.
Productive cough with discolored phlegm especially when associated with fever is suggestive of lung infection requiring prompt treatment with appropriate antibiotic therapy. The cough can be due to airway inflammation treated with stepwise asthma treatment. A chest xray and medical evaluation/prompt treatment.
