In brief: Likely clearing

Less tissue/debris contained within the mucus.
Usually this is a sign of being on the mend.

In brief: Mucous

Colored mucous can be a sign of infection - bacterial or viral.
If running fever, are not improving or having difficulty breathing - follow with your physician to see if you need an antibiotic.
