Hint #1

Look into your handkerchief and check the color of your mucus as it the simplest indicator of a cold or an allergy. If the mucus is thick and discolored, you have a cold. Whereas, if it is colorless and clear, you have an allergy and would constantly have a running nose.

Hint #2

Retrace your steps back to when are where did you spend your time in the recent past. If you spent more time in a confined place with people feeling under the weather, there is a high probability that you caught infections from them, making you sniffle.
