See a doctor ASAP: This can be a medical emergency. Needs a full detailed assessment of causes and this will usually require imaging studies (chest x-ray, ct) and examination of sputum along with full history and physical. If you can see a pulmonary specialist or an infectious diseases expert that might be best, but in any event see a professional immediately.
