Had sore throat with loads of white stuff on tonsils. Having headache, cough and feeling tired. Cure?

I woke up 3 days ago with a sore throat . I didnt think anything of it as i usually get sore throats when im stressed. The next two days it got worse and worse untill i noticed before i went to bed loads of white stuff all over my tonsils. Iv woken up feeling tired, iv got a nasty cough and im coughing up some hideous stuff. Today iv woken up and my whole head just hurts. Got the worst headache my head just feels painful. If you can imagine having a headache in every part of your head thats what i have! what should i do?
