I was prescribed amoxicillin & phenylephrine HCl for sinusitis. Next day, I found out i'm pregnant. Should I continue/finish the prescription?

In brief: Finish amox
Finish the Amoxicillin but stop the phenylephrine.
Phenylephrine casues blood vesles to constrict. This will open you nose up but will also decrease placental blood flow.

In brief: Continue amoxicillin
Amoxicillin is safe in pregnancy, but it's best to avoid antihistamines such as phenylephrine.
