How long are you having this pain? What is your age and gender? Do you feel pain by pressing in that area? Do you have any urinary or genital symptoms? Is there any radiating or shooting pain or fever?

Based on the information and description, you don't seem to have any alarming symptoms at this time. Onset of your backache is just a week and you don't have any urinary symptoms. Keeping all these information in mind, your backache is most likely due to musculoskeletal problems and can be managed at home by conservative measures like pain meds oral and local, use heating pad, bed rest and physiotherapy.

If it does not improve in 10 days then you will have to go for evaluation and you will need urine test, x ray lumbo- sacral spine, ultrasound to get more insight about your problem.
