In brief: Possibilities...

If this has been going on for 3 weeks or longer, it is likely chronic bronchitis, a form of copd.
If it has been going on for less than that, it is likely acute bronchitis. Your doctor needs to evaluate you so treatment can be initiated. If you smoke, you need to quit immediately and your doctor can also help with this goal.
