Since you are having cough for 2 weeks and you are a smoker i will suggest u take antibiotic tab augmentin 625 mg thrice daily after food for 7 days.
U can also take syrup mits codeine linctus 2 tsf thrice daily for 5 days.
If cough still persist then do chest x ray PA view.If any shadow is found in chest x ray do CT scan of chest with contrast.
