I had strep throat for about five days and was taking different cold medicines and caugh syrups, I wasn't able to go to the doctor, so all these medicines were over the counter, and about a day later I took a drug test for probation and he said I showed up positive for alcohol. I'm trying to figure out what caused this.

Some cough/cold medications have alcohol in them. It helps dissolve the "medicine" part of the medication. Try to explain to your PO that you are taking cold medicine and show him the bottle if you have to. The ingredients should be on it.
