I am about 7 weeks pregnant, I have got the flu at the moment. Will it be ok for me to get anti-biotics or will it harm my baby??

Many antibiotics are safe in pregnancy, but not all. Be sure that your doctor knows that you are pregnant so that you are given an antibiotic that is safe to use in pregnancy.
