The pain at the R upper quadrant doesn't go away neither the nausea, this has lastest for more than 24 hours. My mouth is very dry and bad breath even after brushing. I still have aversion to bad odors.

You need to see an MD ASAP. Your liver is located in the R upper quandrant and that could be a sign of a serious problem. For example (NOT a diagnosis over the internet) this is consistent with Hepatitis A, a significant viral infection. It also could be a "regular" food poisoning.
