Streptococcus : Sounds like you could possibly have strep pharyngitis. Since you have been having symptoms for a week it's advisable to schedule an appointment with your health care provider.

Infection: sore throat may be due to a virus or bacteria or from allergies. The bumps in the back of tongue are enlarged lymph nodes. Warm saline gurgles may help. see your doctor for a strep test and mono test.
