In brief: Likely bronchitis...
Your symptoms sound like acute bronchitis.
If there is no significant fever, it is likely due to a virus so antibiotics are ineffective. This could also be the flu, which is also due to a virus. Trestment is aimed at relieving symptoms while the virus runs its course in a few days. See your doctor if symptoms worsen or you experience shortness of breath.
