Treatment for swollen tonsils with black spots on them

Ive had swollen tonsils for about two weeks now. The first week i had severe white pockets. Now this week the white pockets are mostly gone but i now have black spots on them. I don t know if i should be worried or if its just the lingering of the first weeks sickness.
