Excessive thirst and frequent urination please advise

Patient

Q: I am 15 years of age. I am also active and not overweight. For a week and a few days I have been having excessive thirst and frequent urination. It started off first with excessive thirst. I managed to sooth and create moisture in my throat by throat mints and drinking hot beverages. Coughing up mucus was also very helpful. Through this period of time my urine production had been relatively normal. Then after the thirst had gone, I had the urge to urinate constantly, even after I had gone. Then a short while after the excessive thirst has reoccurred alongside the frequent urination and I am still thirsty even having taken in some water. My urine is very dilute with a colour almost or exactly the colour of water. I have yet to see a health care professional and would hope that you advise me on what to do next.

Symptoms:  Excessive thirst. Frequent urination.
