In brief: Viral cold/URI

Most like is a common cold which is often caused by viruses and only symptom-treatments is needed (treating cough, nasal congestions, fever etc.
.) as there is not antiviral medication for common cold--at least not yet..Common cold will go away with/out treatment, eventually. If your symptoms worsen, you may need to conult your doc to eval for possible strepthroat, tonsillitis etc... Good luck.

In brief: Possibilities...

Sounds like you probably have an upper respiratory infection of some sort, perhaps even strep throat.
You need to see your doctor for examination so you can be treated.
