I have had congestion, sinus pressure, , and issues breathing for two weeks. Should i continue to self medicate with OTC allergy meds, or see a doctor?

In brief: Yes, you should.

After 2 weeks, it is no longer a simple cold.
Also, you mention breathing problems. It sounds like you have at least a sinus infection, which after 2 weeks would require antibiotics. Also, you may need prescription medication for your breathing.
