Brief Answer:
Yes, you should definitely consult doctor.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
In my opinion, you should definitely consult doctor.
Thick green mucus is suggestive of bacterial infection. So you will need antibiotic and for this doctor 's prescription is needed.
You may also need x ray of PNS (paranasal sinuses) and chest x ray if doctor feels so.
So better to consult doctor.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
