What does a swollen tonsil and a cough mean if those are my only symptoms? Will it go away on it's own?

In brief: Virus
Likely just a viral upper respiratory infection.
If symptoms persist for over 1-2 weeks consider seeing a doctor.

In brief: Yes
Cough is from the irritation of the pharynx.
As tonsils heal(or removed) the irritation is removed and the cough should stop.
