Thanks for posting your query.
The mild low grade fever that you are having might not be related to the menstruation. It is likely to be due to a minor viral infection. You can start taking tablet acetaminophen for symptomatic relief. Usually such symptoms subside in 4-5 days.
In case the fever is high grade, associated with chills and rigor or other symptoms of systemic infection then you need to consult your physician for specific treatment.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
