My throat swab report says this "Gram Stain : No pus cells and occasional gram positive cocci in pairs and short chains seen.", Antibiotic treatment?

In brief: Normal

Gram stains are rarely done on throat swabs.
In any case, this report is entirely normal and does not indicate a need for antibiotic treatment. Discuss with your doctor.
