Hi and Welcome Mr Bilal, Yellowish with High Lymphocyte count Pleural effusion is
indicative of Pulmonary Tuberculosis, no am not saying it cannot be some other condition, there are many, ask the Doctor who ordered Pleural tapping and testing,
he have all the data hence in a position to give you a proper diagnosis.

My mother is in the hospital with similar diagnosis. She has reoccuring pleural effusion which has not responded to treament with antibiotics. my mother has had a dry hacking cough for the las twenty years which I thought was caused by allergy or something in that area. I thimk it is allergy related because I had the same or similar type of cough which disrupted my life in many ways. The cough was so bad that a developed diverticulum in my throat. My Doctor, Dr Khan at the time decided to do a blood test to rule out allergy.The test came out positive, I received treatment and the cough was gone.
