In brief: You

You likely have a pharyngitis (throat infection).
It may be viral or bacterial. If it is viral it should go away in 7-10 days, if it is bacterial you will need antibiotics. Therefore you should see your doctor for an evaluation, diagnostic testing, and treatment if necessary. In the meantime tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil will help with the pain, as well as warm salt gargles three times a day. I hope you are better soon.
