My 7 month old isn't drinking a whole lot. He's not interested in the bottle at all and yesterday only drank about 5 oz. He is teething and has a big of a runny nose, could this be why or should I be concerned that he isn't taking in enough fluid?

You need to worry about dehydration when he's not making wet diapers. If he's making several a day, he's probably not dehydrated, but if it's just a couple and they are very yellow and have a very strong smell of urine, definitely call the doc's office or take him to the ER.
