Brief Answer:
Not due to pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The running nose and cough is not related to pregnancy or the period. It is likely to be due to a mild viral infection.
Since you are having periods for 2 days already, pregnancy is ruled out.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

Brief Answer:
Wait for your periods to start.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing again.
If your period has not yet started even then there is no need to worry. Runny nose is not due to pregnancy. Just wait for your periods to start. In case these are delayed by 5 days then do a urine test to find out.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
