This general use widget looks okay, but I've never used it
I just wanted to mention that I check the US Mobile app on occasion to check usage, and it works great for me!
Check usage log in ufone/jazz/warid/telenor online portals. If it shows Few internet Kbs being used after few hrs and fixed interval, It could be your phone. This happened to me long time ago with samsung galaxy s4 and I was also in same loop. Balance getting empty itself, multiple calls to call center with no help.. To test it further, install This app , do not use mobile data for 1 day, wifi only and see if it reports any data usage. If Yes then its definitely your phone. In that case, backup everything important, reset phone then on first setup, don't enter gmail id. After setting up everything and home screen appears, open playstore, enter gmail id and now check if issue is resolved. This worked for me long time ago, so i won't guarantee if it will still work but you can give it a try
I don't think there is any way to add this to the pull down without rooting, but an alternative would be a data tracking widget.
Here's the first result in the play store which looks like it has the correct widget https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.roysolberg.android.datacounter
I'm not sure how easy it will be to make it one widget, but you can definitely get both of those functions. Data Counter Widget will give you the monthly counts, and something like Data control widget could turn the data on and off.
Works well for me:
I use this, it works great!
I use NetGuard with this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.roysolberg.android.datacounter
I guess this would be of help.

Based on your post and comments, data usage seems to be your primary concern. I use 'Slide' on data-savings mode and am quite happy with it.
Android reports that over the last 30 days, I've used 1.91gbs. My most active day saw 157mbs of usage (I had several days near this number).
I use Slide daily (in data savings mode) for many hours. I'm on wi-fi about 99% of the time. Since I'm on wifi, I don't hold back: I watch a ton of videos, images... multimedia only displays when you click on it.
Without data-savings mode (when I first started using Android reddit clients), I had noticed that I would easily hit 200mb per quick session. This was without clicking video links, etc. Apparently clients like to prefetch, in addition to displaying hi-quality images when you're just scrolling.
So 1.91 gbs in 30 days, using reddit for many hours daily (and not shying away from videos, images, etc) is great!
I also have a widget called Data Counter Widget - great way to get immediate feedback on data usage.
