In brief: Many possibilities

Aside from pregnancy, there are many possible causes of such symptoms.
Infectious gastroenteritis (a "gi bug") is probably most common, but other acute illnesses, dehydration, meniere's disease, heart problems, and many others are possibilities. If this worsens or lasts more than a day or two, especially without diarrhea or other signs of gastro, you should be evaluated.
