In brief: Viral infection

If the symptoms just started a few days ago, it is a viral infection.
If it has been more than a week, it needs to be checked out by a doctor.

In brief: Infection....

Your symptoms are likely due to acute bronchitis, an infection of the airways caused by either a viral or bacterial infection.
A viral infection will run its course but a bacterial infection will likely need antibiotics. The high fever points towards a bacterial infection. You should see your doctor so your symptoms can be diagnosed and treated.
