it seems you are suffering from acute respiratory tract infection.
Try using warm saline gargle, nasal drops, a mucolytic cough preparation.
Avoid cold and spicy foods.
Try some warm liquids, they will soothe your throat.
You can try steam inhalation.
If situation worsens, contact your family physician immediately.
Wish you a speedy recovery.
