How to pass extra variables in URL with Wordpress

I am having trouble trying to pass an extra variable in the url to my wordpress installation.

For example

/news?c=123


For some reason, it works only on the website root
www.example.com?c=123
but it does not work if the url contains any more information
www.example.com/news?c=123
. I have the following code in my functions.php file in the theme directory.

if (isset($_GET['c']))
{
setcookie("cCookie", $_GET['c']);
}

if (isset($_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER']))
{
setcookie("rCookie", $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER']);
}


Any Ideas?
