I believe I have tonsillitis, but I'm not sure if

Patient : I believe I have tonsillitis, but I'm not sure if it's necessary to go to the doctor for antibiotics. I keep reading where they may not help. It started out as a big white circle on my left tonsil, and it was a little swollen. Now there are little white spots on both tonsils and they are BOTH swollen. The pain comes and goes but I definitely feel that they are swollen. I heard it gets worse and then gets better so is it at its final stages?
Symptoms:  Mucous, feel swelling in neck, enlarged tonsils
