I get very thick mucus coming out everytime I cough. Also hard to breath at the same time. No history of asthma. Any issue with me? Coughed for 3 wks.

In brief: Cough

Could be post-viral cough? Bronchitis? Asthma? Pneumonia? Need to keep a diary of associated symptoms (fever, chills, aches, pains, sick contacts, recent travel, spent time with grandkids/nieces/nephews, etc.
.) and get in to see your doctor. A simple fix is on the horizon. Could even be gerd manifesting as cough.

In brief: See doctor last week

Bronchitis or pneumonia likely causes.
Asthma, tuberculosis, sinusitis are also possible. It depends on what you mean by "hard to breath". Past time to see your physician.

In brief: Need evaluation

Asthma can arise at any age; these symptoms can also be associated with bronchitis.
You should see your primary care doctor or an allergist to get this sorted out.
