I was walking to my room to go to bed, and stopped to give the piggers more hay, when Darwynn did this like barking sound about 4 times, then rubbed his nose. I'm scared. What could this be? Maybe just a little cold?

Please help me out I freaking for my little piggie. :(

Guinea pigs don't get colds.
Mocha had a problem where she ate a sharp piece of hay and it scratched the back of her throat, the scratch got infected and moved to her respiraory and she got a URI, and that caused her to cough after she ate.
I would take Darwynn to a vet, just to be on the safe side.

It sounds to me like he was trying to dislodge something, since he rubbed his nose afterwards. Keep an eye on him, naturally, but I would wait to see if he has any more problems before taking him to the vet.
