This could be a viral gastroenteritis (a viral infection that affects the stomach and intestines) or food poisoning. You need to follow an anti-diarrheal diet (oral rehydration solution, laban, boiled potatoes, steamed rice, and good sources of potassium which is lost in the diarrheal stools, like bananas). To control the nausea and stomach pain, first and foremost you need to replenish fluids in your body (dehydration increases the level of acid in the body, making nausea and stomach pain worse), in addition to anti-emetics and anti-spasmodics.
In case the pain persists, or shifts to the right lower part of the abdomen, you will need to seek medical care promptly to rule out more serious conditions like acute appendicitis or cystitis (infection in the urinary bladder).
