You have to get yourself tested by your doctor to see whether you have developed pulmonary tuberculosis or not.
It is only after confirmation of pulmonary tuberculosis,that you will be required to take the anti tubercular medicines.
You can't take anti tubercular medicines of your own without the confirmation of PTB.
