Thank you for your query.
Your tests are essentially normal except for an elevated WBC count.
This is a non specific test and just indicates the possibility of an infection somewhere in the body.
You have already taken antibiotics for 5 days, so I would not advise taking any more antibiotics if your sputum report is normal.
Pregnancy is an immunocompromised condition so frequent cold and cough is common.
Please take natural home remedies for your complaints.
Maintain good immunity with a high protein diet and vitamin C supplements.
Do not travel excessively, and avoid exposure to pollution.
Try steam inhalation and warm saline gargles.
Hot soups also will help.
If all else fails, please consult an ENT specialist.
I would not recommend taking endless antibiotics meaninglessly in pregnancy.
Take care.
