In brief: OTC medication
Any of the over the counter cough drops will be ok.
If you have a sinus infection with drainage, you can try non-prescription decongestants, mucolytics, and cough suppressants as needed for your symptoms. There are very effective prescription cough suppressants that are safe during pregnancy - you doctor can prescribe as appropriate.
