Phlegm in babies

My 1 week 10 days old baby has been sneezing a few times last 2 days and now when he sleeps i can hear sounds at the back of his nose/throat like phlegm blocking his nasal. Went to see doc at poly and was given saline drops to insert in his nose every 6 hrs. Should i continue doing this or should i return to a doc and get them to help clear the phlegm? It pains me to hear my LO breathing with some kind of obstuction in the nasal area.

I guess it's normal? My 1mo is experiencing the same as though he has something stuck in his chest sometimes. My CL said all babies have some phlegm in them since birth and will slowly cough/vomit out along the way (which seems the case for me!)
