On treatment for TB. High ESR levels. Sputum test shows positive for gram positive cocci. What does it mean?

based on X ray and CT scan doc concluded TB and hospitalized of 10 day and tb medicines are taken for at least 20 days. but after 20 days of medication my ESR is around 101, with no recovery. As from beginning no cough was observed so the broncos-copy was done to collect sputum, and cytology test of sputum comes with Gram positive cocci.
Prescription given by doc:
cap. Panplus L
cap cobadex CZ
cap. vitaresp
Tab C C M
tab. Claribid 250 mg
