In brief: Yes

You are wise to ask what you can take during pregnancy, there are some things you shouldn't, especially in the early stages.
The zpak is absolutely safe for you, but be careful about over the counter cold remedies, decongestants, mucinex, and many others should not be used at this stage in pregnancy. You can use tylenol, (acetaminophen) and a saline nasal spray, tea and honey and cough drops, but not cough meds.

In brief: Yes

But only if prescribed by you're doctor. Also, almost all bronchitis is viral and will not benefit from antibiotics.
