In brief: Lung problem

It could be a bronchitis, pneumonia, or something else.
It is certainly worth getting checked out, especially if it has lasted for any length of time. Your primary doctor can provide a good evaluation and treatment plan, but may need to refer you to a specialist depending on the exact nature of your problem.
