Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. What you described is consistent with pulmonary tuberculosis, not necessarily active disease. It would be prudent to see a doctor, preferably a chest specialist/pulmonologist.
Wish you good health!
