Hi and welcome,
It seems like you are suffering from respiratory tract infection. The best move for you would be to get a swab test or sputum culture and sensitivity done so that exact bacteria which is causing it can be identified and antibiotics accordingly can be given. You might need different antibiotic like levofloxacin. Meanwhile take steam and gargle with Luke warm water with salt and take 2 tablets of tylenol every 8 hourly and take cough syrup with expectorant in it.
Let me know if you have further questions.

Yes you can wait for another 2 days and see your doctor after your antibiotics finish and if symptoms do not improve. Ibuprofen is fine but if you take paracetamol or acetamenophen it will lower down fever as well along with pain relief. Gargles and steam inhalation would help a lot.
Wish you good health.,
