Are blisters on tonsils symptom of tonsilitis?

Hi, my 20 month old daugther has had symptoms of a cold for a few days. I have looked in her mouth to day and her tonsils have clear blisters on them. Is that the start of tonsilitis? She has not eaten alot over the past few days and think that this could be the reason why. She also has a runny nose, temp, and is drooling alot but no new teeth. Thanks
