first of all diphtheria is very rare and very unlikely diagnosis in todays world. diphtheria won't wait for 2 weeks to show symptoms and within couple of days it will end up being a very severe diseases with significant mortality. you might be suffering from tonsillitis or pharyngitis. kindly consult nearby ENT specialist so that diagnosis can be confirmed and appropriate treatment can be started

Go to an ENT Specialist near you. It could be Acute Pseudomembranous Tonsillitis which is also an equally dangerous condition if ignored.
