I would suggest a culture of the sputum and a broad spectrum antibiotic with Strep coverage.

Fever? Smoker or exposed to smoke? Wheezing? "Blood work OK" means normal CBC? Taking any meds? Asthma? Have a cat? Usually this sort of thing is NOT best treated with any antibiotic. An inhaler, usually albuteral, is generally the best remedy.

You may have a case of pneumonia and may need a course of antibiotic. Consult your doctor.
