Most likely you has bronchitis and you need to see a doctor simple antobiotics will do the trick, and if you smoke, QUIT! and it will go away.

Frothy sputum can be a sign of something quite serious and should be looked at immediately by a medical professional. Although certain minor lung inflammations can cause it as well such as bronchitis, frothy sputum can indicate serious conditions such as heart failure, heart disease, and pulmonary edema. Depending on what causes it, the treatment can be easy or extensive.

Get to a hospital, first of all. This can be a very serious condition. The medical staff at the hospital will be able to remove the sputum from your lungs while at the same time making sure you have the right amount of oxygen.
