Pharyngitis: Seems like a pharyngitis of some sort. That can be viral or bacterial. If your noticing some type of coating on your tongue I would get it checked.

Virus: if you are not too sick it will go away like a common cold, ...if it last a long time & you get more uncomfortable, more fever, go to the dr. or e.r.

Seasonal flu: is very common viral infection. Usually the condition resolves on its own with home care. Drink water and get a good rest. NSAIDs (e.g. Aleve, (naproxen) Advil) are also recommended every 6 hours. If concerned, see your PCP for examination.
