Prob a side effect.: Regardless of whether you had a positive flu test or not before starting Tamiflu, (oseltamivir) you are on your last day of treatment. If nausea doesn't diminish once you stop the drug, pl get checked again by your physician for associated complications of flu, including sinus disease and pneumonia etc.

Maybe... stop it: Unfortunately, the med may also cause nausea in some. If the worst of the flu is past, or you are not on it for exposure, I would consider stopping it for a day a reasonable thing to try.
