Hi. This morning I found throw up in my Kimchees cage. She is now in the corner of the bottom of her cage. A few days ago she had watery stool but now it's almost cleared. Yesterday she was happy and playing. She just went back up on her perch. Should I be worried?
It does sound like a vet visit would be a good idea, but there could be other explanations. What is she doing down in the corner - looking tired and sick, or acting like she's sitting on a nest? The corner of the cage bottom is a popular place for breeding behavior. Is she eating normally? If she's acting like she's sick then definitely call a vet.

No, do not wait until Friday, I'm guessing that your bird may not last until Friday. I'm not saying this to scare you, but I kind of am saying it to scare you.
The fact that you say "He looks tired and sick" tells me all I need to know, as birds hide all signs of illness as long as they can. So he has most likely been sick for a long time, and as SilverSage already stated, they wait until they are close to death to show that they are sick.
I'm very sorry, but diarrhea + vomiting + bottom of the cage + tired and sick looking = EMERGENCY AVIAN VET IMMEDIATELY!
Your cockatiel is very sick, and if you don't get him to a certified or qualified avian vet immediately it's going to end badly. Do you have a certified or qualified avian vet? Please find one immediately if you don't, a general vet or an Exotics vet that "sees birds" is better than nothing so if that's all you can get him to immediately than please do that, but a certified or qualified avian vet will know to run fecal smears, cultures, possibly blood work, and they'll know what meds to use. But the main thing right now is time is of the essence, please take him now!
I don't think you realize how severe the situation really is. Anytime a bird is acting sick, it is an emergency situation! If your bird is so sick that they can no longer hide their symptoms, they are usually on the brink of death. You need to rush your bird to any avian vet that will allow you to come in as an emergency walk-in. Even if you have to drive hours to get to that vet, it is better than waiting until tomorrow. By waiting around and not taking Uber to the veterinarian immediately you could be signing his death sentence. Please take your Bird to the vet right away, which ever vet will let you come in that is qualified to treat birds.

If the bird is playing, eating, and currently not showing any additional signs of GI distress, I don't think it's an emergency. It's not actually that uncommon for birds to have unexplained episodes of vomiting that pass on their own. That being said, I would still see the vet ASAP, and WOULD treat it as an emergency if she starts showing symptoms again, including just being lethargic.
