In brief: Could be both

First stop smoking! this is an irritant to the airways and can cause a wheeze.
An infection can cause inflammation to the airways which could make you wheeze. Take advantage of the wheeze and stop smoking and see your doctor. All that wheezes is not asthma! meaning many things can also cause wheeze.
