    can you get her to a vet?

    does she have any other symptoms? her eyes, sinuses, etc
    can you check her choanal slit? she could have something stuck

    There is nothing there, but it is coated in weird yellow discharge. Her sinuses are fine but i am not sure about what the discharge is.
