Yes, it can happen with strong antibiotic. Do not stop the medicine. Keep nuring, but get good probiotic to give to yourself and the baby. How many more days of antibiotic do you have left?

4 more days. I have myself a probiotic, is it ok to open the capsule and give him a bit of the powder? I remember doing it that way for my other child but i see that now they have liquid ones especially for babies.

The dr told me to make sure im emptying my breasts, my right breast has mastitis. So should i be pumping to empty my breast after he falls asleep at the breast? Im worried if i do that then ill make even more milk and keep getting clogs/infections. Ive been doing one breast per feed.

A breast is never truly empty. Milk is being made even as the baby suckles. You are correct in that you don't want to start pumping over and above what your baby is consuming. The necessary thing is to prevent engorgement by continuing to nurse your baby on demand.
