Chest infection?

I have had a cold on and off for 6 weeks but woke up two days ago with a very sore chesty cough, I am struggeling to get anything up because it just hurts too much to cough but the stuff that comes up is not very nice. I find myself feeling very out of breath walking up stairs or doing too much and my heart is pounding. My temperature is 38C but i feel cold and the hairs on my arms are up so I think I am actually cold as opposed to trying to cool down.

I can see the dr tomorrow, is it worth it? Or is it viral?
