Issues Pleural effusion + Ascites + lymoahdenopathy + Raised create Infective etiology involving multiple systems most likely eg disseminated kochs.. I would suggest Pleural and ascitic fluid diagnostic tapping , rule out exudative vs transudative fluid....do ADA, LEH ,protein and sugars... Also Do urine routine for proteinuria..other possibility of nephrotic syndrome...

If he has fever ...D/D may be leptospirosis

His investigation sort from raised urea and slightly raised creatinine is remarkable, his job is 11.5 so you can forget the pallor,I would like to know which area of abdomen ,the pt.has pain.to me without palpation it is very difficult to diagnose pain abdomen. I am from old school of medicine , and examination of pt.is paramount to reach a diagnosis,but you young people investigation is important.msy be that is the way you have been taught.yry put a drip of normal saline or dextrose after checking sugar .
