Bronchitis or just bad asthma?

I was diagnosed with asthma about 2 years ago, and I have a preventer inhaler. It's usually quite under control, but for about a week I've had a constant cough that (apparently) sounds like a foghorn, and I've been coughing up sputum. I've also had general cold symptoms, and it gets a lot worse at night. Right before it started I had a sore throat/bad cold, which I've heard can trigger bronchitis. Should I go get it checked out or just wait for it to clear up?
