Likely: A stomach bug. Usually these recover in 3-4 days, so you should be getting better soon. The important job is to keep up with your fluids. If you have abdominal pain, persistent vomiting, fever or blood in your stool be seen. Also if you can't keep up with your fluids and don't recover as anticipated; be seen. All the best for a quick recovery.
