I have had a very heavy cold for nearly two weeks and over

Resolved Question:

I have had a very heavy cold for nearly two weeks and over the last three days the discharge from my nose has become very, very yellow. I have a cough. I do not recall having this experience before and am nearly 68. My wife has just said this is a sign of infection and we are about to go overseas. Is my wife right?
