Walking pneumonia, bronchitis, cough, high pulse rate, blood clots in lungs. Suggestions?

Im a 33 year old female and have had walking pneumonia several times and bronchitis . History of mitral valve prolapse and tachycardia . Went to the doctors the other day w a severe cough and my resting heart was 134 which is higher then normal. The ER doc treated me for bronchitis but mentioned concern about a possibly blood clot in my lungs. Should I be worried and what should I do now?
