Brief Answer:
please meet your doctor

Detailed Answer:

There can be many reasons for your cough including a chest infection and early asthma and you should meet your doctor for confirming this.

From your symptoms it looks more like a early asthma or bronchitis and your doctor may ask you to do a chest xray for confirming this.

For the time being you can try a cough syrup called as Ambroxol , 2 teaspoon twice a day , it will help reduce the symptoms and give you relief.

You can also start taking steam inhalation 2-3 times a day and avoid hot and spicy food.

Take care!
