In brief: Likely viral

Make sure he's getting plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration - pedialyte works well.
If any difficulty breathing or fever he should be evaluated.

In brief: Needs to be seen

Cough is the body's way to clear out the airway.
It can be caused by many reasons. Similarly, diarrhea can be caused by the body's need to get some material, such as an infection, out of the body. Even without a fever, in a child that age i would suggest they see the doctor soon.
