Perhaps: About 10% of common colds ends up with a bacterial sinusitis. Can't tell the cause for the red spots on your stomach but they may be part of the cold. Consider consulting your family doctor if these symptoms have been present for 2 weeks or fail to improve.

Yes: Any upper airway disease lasting for two weeks, needs attention in FORM of a consult to a doctor. The spots on your abdomen would need to be looked at too. The may or may not be related to the cough. There are a number of viral infections that can fit your picture.

Mgt: I would advise a virtual consult and the photo of the rash may be uploaded. Varicella or another virus may be related to your symptoms.
