In brief: 2 Week Flu
The flu does not last two weeks.
A typical course is over by ten days. The "2 week flu" has now become something else, likely a sinus infection. Go see your doctor. Sounds like time for an antibiotic.

In brief: Sounds like it
The "flu" typically runs it's course in about 7-10 days.
If you are having cold-like/flu-like symptoms beyound that time (without body aches)... It is likely a sinus infection. Symptoms you would expect: nasal stuffiness, facial pain/pressure, tooth pain, ear pain, throat pain, fatigue, headache.. All symptoms of sinusitis... See your primary care for further evaluation.
