In brief: Possibilities...

Possible causes of your symptoms include post-nasal drip leading to sore throat and bronchospasm leading to cough.
This may be due to a viral infection, including viral bronchitis. Since this is likely a viral infection, antibiotics would be ineffective. If there is no improvement over the next week, or if symptoms worsen, see your doctor. If you smoke, you need to quit asap!
