welcome to HealthcareMagic
Flu is a viral infection & subsides mostly on its own but the secretion of mucus can remain for a week or more no need to worry if you don't have any other symptom.As for the black tint in mucus it could be clotted blood coming from posterior part of nose ;it should go away in 2-3 days or if it stays consult your doctor who can prescribe a nasal spray & you should be fine.
