Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

The symptoms you described do points towards viral fever but to be sincere, there are several types of contagious fevers out there, it is very difficult to differentiate between them. Dengue fever do have symptoms like low platelet levels and hemorrhages internal and external. But don't worry, all these fevers curable with proper treatment.
Get your blood checked for proper diagnosis. Don't take chance by doing home treatment.
Get well soon.

It seems that you might be having viral infection.
If temperature continued, go for complete blood count to rule out Dengue, Malaria etc.
Take plenty of water.
Take light diet.
Ok and take care.
