Tonsillitis: White spots on your tonsils is usually caused by viral infections, tonsil stones or (less commonly) yeast. It would be uncommon for you to have developed symptoms of mononucleosis infection after one day, but it is a distinct possibility that this is the culprit. Your primary care doctor can help you sort this out with a simple blood test.
