Probably not: Sounds like a run of the mill viral cold coming on. If it doesn't go back to normal within a couple weeks then think about it.
If you are not sure, see a dr. Chest pain as described by words in a post is hard to definitively say much about.

Dry mouth: You should get checked by your physician to see if you have a systemic condition, that can be treated. The dry mouth could be caused by mouth breathing, due to a sinusitis.

Cold medicine: With the symptoms you are relating, it is likely you are taking a otc remedy for decongestant etc. These are well known to dry out the oral environment. Hydrate well, and if it continues beyond the time of taking meds, see your md.
