Lump in neck, painful. Taken penicillin. X-ray normal. Should I be worried about a new lump?

About a month ago I went to the doctor because I noticed a small lump on the left side of my neck right above my collar bone and an aching pain in and around that area, doctor put me on antibiotics , penicilin, for 10 days and sent me for an x-ray , x-ray came out normal, antibiotics did nothing for the lump; in fact, I noticed another one above the first lump. Should I be worried?
