Time: It sounds like you have adequately treated any possible bacterial infection. Give the irritation in your throat time to go away. Gargle with mouthwash or salted water. Relax and go about your life. If this gets worse or fails to go away completely in a few weeks go see a medical practitioner.

Sore throat: Do you mean two course of antibiotics or two days of antibiotics ? If its two course then it could be possible viral infection which doesnt respond to antibiotics . If its two days then you need to finish the course of antibiotics and it should go away .

Yes.: Little smeely white chunks are common in the back of the throat and are known as tonsoliths. Sometimes they can be coughed up or expressed from pockets in the tonsils. They are nothing to worry about.

If it becomes chronic and hard to live with, you can consider having your tonsils removed. That will ultimately solve the problem.

Sounds like it.: Could be viral upper respiratory tract infection which would generally include additional symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, cough, etc. Could also be early strep throat which should not have many additional symptoms.
