In brief: Maybe

Asthma symptoms are cough, wheeze, shortness of breath and/or chest tightness that is recurrent.
It typically worsens at night and with exercise. There are multiple triggers including allergies, smoke/irritants and even acid reflux. An allergist or pulmonologist can perform a history, exam and lung function tests to help determine if asthma is the cause.

In brief: Cough

Depends how long you have had it.
Is it new onset? It could also be viral, like croup.
