You shouldn't be working out any muscle 2 days in a row. There's many other forms of pullups you could do that would help keep your muscles confused so you can continue making gains.

The pullup is a compound lift, and depending on the exact style you do, it's generally working mostly the back, but also shoulders, biceps and chest. Working out all these muscles properly would benefit your pullup abilities. Many different forms of pushups would benefit several of these muscle groups also.

I know I'm not the most knowledgeable member here, but i believe i could definitely help you. If you have more in depth questions regarding exercises, form or if you want videos describing anything, feel free to pm me or ask here.

If i remember correctly, you don't have a gym membership or home gym, so there's many exercises you can do that utilize your body weight for resistance.

I hope i was of some help, feel free to ask away!
