you are most probably suffering from acute tonsilo-pharyngitis.
you can take some broad spectrum antibiotics like ciprofloxacin 500mg twice a day along with some anti-inflammatory like voveran-plus twice a day for a week

if after above treatment your problem does not resolve then physical examination of your oral cavity & pharynx is recommended by any E.N.T specialist.
