In brief: Chills

Chills can be a sign of infection, especially if you have fever as well.
Do you have any other signs of infection (sore throat, ear pain, burning with urination, rashes etc.?). If your chills don't go away you should visit your doctor for a medical exam and treatment as deemed necessary. Best of luck.
