First of all, you need to calm down and take a deep breath.
You've only had your budgies for a couple of days.
It is very normal for birds to be stressed when they are first moved into a new environment.
Sitting on the bottom of the cage fluffed up can easily be a sign your budgie is terrified.
Cover the top and three sides of the budgies' cage.
Play soft music for them and allow them time to become acclimated to their new home.
Do not try to touch your budgies for at least two weeks. They need time to settle in.
You need to take the time to read ALL of the information in the links I provided in the Private Message, Visitor Message and your other thread.
Doing so will help you learn about budgies and their behavior so you won't be so stressed.
It would have been best if this had been done prior to getting the birds, but as it is, you can sit next to their cage and read the information out loud to them. Talking out loud will help them become accustomed to your voice and presence and will help them feel more secure.
I would not recommend giving any medication to the birds at this point in time without consulting with an Avian Vet first. While the ones listed below may not be in your immediate area, you can easily call and consult with them via telephone.

While it is very challenging for people who live in countries with few Avian Vets, there are steps you can take to help ensure your budgies' health.
With the right motivation, you can work with a regular or veterinarian to get the proper care for your budgie(s).
You will want to do as much research as you can and learn as much about budgies and the best practices for their care so you can provide your little ones with the best possible life.
We have a member in India who has done this and has developed a great relationship with a regular vet.
With the member's research and the vet's collaboration, they have found ways of providing care for her budgie that she would have not been able to manage otherwise.
When you develop a good relationship with a regular veterinarian, that individual can collaborate via telephone or Skype with Avian Veterinarians in other countries if necessary to get assistance in appropriate diagnosing and prescribing treatment for your Avian companions.
