In brief: You should.

This is likely an std or sexually transmitted disease, and if untreated, it can lead to urethritis, epididymitis, and lymphogranuloma venereum.
It is treated with tetracycline or doxycycline. There are other forms like c. Psitticosis from birds and c. Pneumoniae from people that infects the lungs. See your doctor and get treated fast and tell your partner if is an std.
