13m old runny nose & cough for 5 days. Turned into thick phlegm today. Can hear it when she breathes. Color is clear. No fever. Do I need to see doc?

In brief: Watch closely

Clear discharge and no fever is a good sign that cautionary observation should be sufficient.
Labored breathing, new fever, change in behavior or appetite, increase in fussiness or overall worsening should prompt a visit to the doctor.

In brief: Cough

Yes, it's RSV season which can cause thick mucous and can lead to wheezing, so even though no fever, should have their lungs checked out.
