In brief: Sounds like a

Viral infection. You can just treat the symptoms if you don't get much worse.
Mucinexdm will loosen and help with the cough. Dayquil and nyquil help too . Ibuprofen or aleve (naproxen) for fever or aches. A cool mist humidifier in the room will help too. Did you get a flu shot?

It is likely viral.
Fluids, rest, tylenol (acetaminophen) should help the symptoms.
