Pharyngitis: Most times, acute pharyngitis (infection of the back of the throat) are caused by viruses or bacteria. Symptoms of these infections include, but are not limited to: 1) sore throat, 2) runny nose, 3) cough, 4) sinus pressure, 5) otalgia (ear pain), 6) fever, 7) fatigue. Best to give it time and push the fluids! if not improving then you need to see a medical provider!

Please call your doc: I am concerned about the neck stiffness and pain in the base of skull otherwise it could just be viral sore throat but it is better to be safe and get it checked good luck.

See an ENT: Blood from the nose could just be nosebleeds, but this is something i would check out thoroughly. There is nothing normal about coughing up blood.
