There is no indication that this can be due to meningitis, hence no need to be concerned. She is probably suffering from a viral infection and needs the rest. Make sure that she drinks a lot of fluids and stays hydrated. For the sore throat salt water gargle and pain reducing medication such as Ibuprofen will be beneficial. For the pale skin I would recommend that she has a complete blood count done to look for anemia. This can be done after her symptoms decrease. However if she has worsening of symptoms such that she is not able to swallow or if she gets new symptoms such as nausea, abdominal pain, headache, or high fever then you may take her to the ER.

Being a mother it is natural to be concerned despite all the assurances. However medically there is no reason to worry at present with these symptoms since these are very common and will resolve in a few days even without any treatment.
