Thanks of the query.
If you are in your second trimester and suffering from cold and cough then it is likely that an inspiratory pain under the collarbone at the apical region of the lung can indicate a possible development of pleuritis.
This is ideally treated with antibiotics but as you are pregnant, it is better to resort to steam inhalation with plain water thrice a day and if required , when no relief is obtained then a course of pregnancy sad antibiotics like azithromycin may be taken with a daily dose of 500mg for 5 days and that should relieve the infection.
I hope I have answered your query in detail,
Wishing you good health.
