Brief Answer:
Bronchitis is possible

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor's service. I read your query and here is my advice.

Coughing up white mucus may be a sign of chest congestion and inflammation. This inflammation is possibly bronchitis.
You can use mucolytics such guaiphenesin and also decongestants such pseudoephedrine to help this phlegm come out and inflammation to stop.
You have about three weeks with this symptoms ( I see a previous query in 9 December with same concern) and I think taking a round of antibiotics can be helpful to clear the congestion.
Your doctor may give you amoxicillin or ciprofloxacine that work good in respiratory tract infections.
Hope I have answered the question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
