I am 36 & a few nights a week I wake up covered in sweat. I take black cohosh but it doesn't seem to help. Is this a menopause sign or a thyroid prob?

In brief: Testing

Night sweats can have many causes including peri menopause, thyroid disease, and even TB.
Testing is required to say what the cause is in any particular case. See your PCP to start the work-up. Best wishes. Hope this helps.
