I've been having fever for three days, sore throat, sore body and very upset stomach. Could I have the swine flu?

In brief: Viral illness

It sounds like a viral illness.
.. Among the variants of flu out there, it's pretty hard to know which one you have without testing. Most of them have very similar symptoms. Most people who are young, healthy, and without any other chronic illnesses, recover from the flu without any problems. It'll take anywhere from 5-10 days. Fevers > 4 days warrant more concern. Hope you feel better soon!
