I fell like I'm sick and my throat hurt like burning and I hack up something random and I have a sore throat
I think you may have an inflammation in your throat. Do you have a fever? Is the throat red and swollen? If so, you can take antibiotics. If it's serious or even affects how you eat, you should go to the hospital. The doctor may give you hormones.
Ninety percent of the time, it is just throat infection. You should see a doctor and get oral or intravenous antibiotics to treat it. Moreover, have a good rest and drink plenty of water.

FYI, here is a pic for you to have a general idea about what it is.

Strep throat is a bacterial infection that may cause a sore throat or scratchy feeling. Although it is more common in children, it can actually affect people of all ages. If any symptoms appear, go get an appointment with your Dr. cause it may cause complications (kidney inflammation or rheumatic fever) without prompt treatment. 

For those who are not aware of your situation, if you have any of the following symptoms, go to the hospital and have a thorough test: fever, rash, headache, body aches, nausea, swollen, tender lymph nodes in your neck, quickly coming throat pain, tiny red spots at the back of the roof of the mouth, red and swollen tonsils, etc.
