1 doctor agrees

In brief: Depends on health

If one is a smoker you may well need antibiotics.
If one is not a smoker and not severely ill you might wait a couple of days prior to see your doctor. If you have fever, cough and chest pain , it would be wise to go see your doctor as soon as possible. If you have blood in your sputum, then this becomes more severe. Need immediate medical attention in that case. Basic answer see your doc
