Sore throat with chest congestion, Is it just a cold ?

I currently have a sore throat and what feels like chest congestion . I have been taking tussen and a generic of mucinex and it only helps for a short while. I have also been coughing up phlegm in the mornings that has a dark brown color to it. it hurts to swallow, feels tender when I talk and I feel pressure on my chest when I breath. Could I possibly have more than just a cold?
