In brief: Probably a cold

All these things could occur with a cold.
Colds lasting more than 10 days may have developed into a sinus infection. If you have fevers and a headache influenza is a possibility. Pertussis could give you a cough that just won't let up, give you barking cough, or make you cough until you vomit. If your symptoms seem to be going on too long, see your primary physician.
