No way to know for sure without actually testing you but with a fever and other symptoms, it could be the flu.

The most common symptoms of flu according to the center for disease control are: -fever (usually high) -headache -nausea, vomiting or diarrhea -fatigue -sore throat -runny nose or congestion -cough -body aches unfortunately, it is difficult to diagnose the flu versus another virus based on symptoms alone since many other illnesses can cause similar symptoms.
Give your doctor a call. They may be able to test you for the flu. In the meantime, get plenty of rest and drink plenty of fluids. Good luck!
