Hi,

You are having acute pharyngitis because of which you have a swelling in the neck (lymph nodes). If you suspect any thing unusual please do consult your physician get the blood tests done along with heterophile antibody test (eg, the Monospot test). The test results may be negative early in the course of EBV infectious mononucleosis. Positivity increases during the first 6 weeks of the illness.

But, you barely have the symptoms of infectious mononucleosis.

You  can try with antibiotics (such as Augmentin), pain killers (Ibuprofen/diclofenac), povidone iodine throat gargles and drink plenty of warm water. Hope this should relive off your symptoms. Any doubts you are welcome.
