I have had a cough two weeks. The last few days

Resolved Question:

I have had a cough two weeks. The last few days it has got worse and is keeping me awake periods at night. Last night I coughed until I was sick.
At the moment it seems like quite a dry cough, but at times it fells like mucus is loosening. My upper back is now aching and my lungs have a bit of a burning feeling. I also have a horrible taste at the back of my throat. I am not feeling quite myself as I'm not getting much sleep and I don't have a huge appetite. I just wanted to check should I phone appointment out of hours GP or just wait till Monday?
