In brief: Could be either

Food poisoning or stomach flu can hit all of a sudden.
The key is to get enough fluid down to adequately replace losses. Some electrolyte (lightly salted snack or gatorade) important too. Both can resolve quickly, stomach flu a bit longer. If dizzy and can't keep liquids down, then go to ER.
