In brief: Strep throat

It sure could be strep.
The only way to know for sure is to get it checked out. Some clinics have a rapid strep test and can give you results pretty fast. Sometimes the old fashioned culture is still done and that can take a day or longer depending on the lab. Other common symptoms of strep include bad breath, white pus and fever. Don't want to delay getting looked at.
