In brief: Give it time

It sounds like you have an upper respiratory tract infection.
Give it a few days. If you continue to worsen past 4 or 5 days of symptoms, then you may need an antibiotic. Of course, if you have any trouble breathing, you should get to the doc right away. Hope you feel better soon!
