Tongue had areas of patchiness, had cold, mouth felt dried out. Is it thrush?

For the past two days my tongue has had areas of patchiness where there are only my taste buds. My mom said it is possible that I have thrush. I have had a cold for just over a week, and I acknowledge that it could possibly be thrush, but I think it could possibly be that because I had slept with my mouth open and it dried out, my tongue stuck to my palate . I was just wondering what all the possibilities could be. It doesn t look like I have thrush or strawberry tongue, from the pictures I saw, but I am not a doctor, so I do not know for sure.
