I have white spots in the back of my throat, I have no pain although my throat feels a little dry. I was sick and swallowed some phlegm?

In brief: Probably nothing

Everyone swallows phlegm. Those white spots are likely food particles stuck in the folds of your tonsils.
They are normal. If you get a severe sore throat and fever then see your doctor.
