I have been smelling smoke for a few days when there isn't any, and had a mild sore throat and slight drainage. Is this a sinus infection?

In brief: It could be post

Nasal drip related to a viral infection.
Sinus infection is possible but often you would feel pressure or pain over the affected sinuses. A medical evaluation would help to accurately diagnose this if the symptoms worsen or are not resolving. Take care.
