To go in, or not?

So I've missed two days of work, which sucks.
I woke up feeling not particularly better than before, but with a different galaxy of symptoms today (hacking cough, massive headache). I can probably medicate those away, and limp through half a work day. Should I?
On one hand, I might be infectious. I also feel like ass-on-toast. (soggy toast, at that) However, on the other, I get paid hourly so my sick time is unpaid. Plus, I've only been there a month, and I don't want them to think I'm a slacker. I'm just really, profoundly sick.
Some people have this work ethic that says you show up unless you're in the hospital. Others figure that makes no sense because you won't get much done anyway, and you might spread it around the office.
I'm torn.
