    It could be anything from smoking, allergies, to a medicine you're taking, etc. The American Academy of Family Physicians suggests that you call your doctor if you answer yes to any of the following questions:

    Are you coughing up thick yellow or green phlegm?

    Are you wheezing (making a whistling sound when you breathe in)?

    Are you running a temperature higher than 101°F?

    Are you losing weight without trying?

    Are you having drenching sweats in bed at night (the sheets and your pajamas get soaking wet)?

    Are you coughing up blood?

    The linked souce has more information on causes.
