In brief: See your doctor!

Fever can signify many different illnesses and usually indicates infection and or inflammation.
Figuring out what is wrong requires a complete review of other symptoms (cough, sore throat, viral infection. See your primary care physician diarrhea, burning with urination, rashes, etc.) a physical exam and often blood work and testing! high fevers often but not always suggest a viral infection..
