Question Possible sinus infection; when to seek help?

I think I have a sinus infection. I've been having insane amounts of mucus coming out of my nose and coughing it up for over two weeks now. I can blow my nose with 10 tissues one right after another and have them all completely filled with nasty clear goo with streaks of blood. I wasn't too concerned about it until I started seeing the blood coming both out of my nose and coughing it up. At what point should I go see my doctor? How long should I let it go? I tend to take quite a bit of time to fight off colds and such and I'm not really in much discomfort...the post nasal drip is very annoying and chokes me but I'm not in too much pain. The sinus pressure comes and goes but is no worse than normal...actually quite a bit better than it was. Any suggestions on helping speed up recovery? I'd really rather not take antibiotics. (they always give me yeast/bacterial infections. ugh!)
