Face: Could be a dental neuralgia. Sometimes related to the jaw. See your dentist first. If they can't find anything then see a neurologist

Sinusitis: At your age as you describe would most likely be sinusitis. Should get treated.

Migraine: You probably have a migraine. Migraine is described as intermittent disabling headaches. The pain is moderate to severe in intensity, throbbing and associated with light and or sound sensitivity. There may be nausea and or vomiting. Pains can last up to 3 days. Right now you are in a little trouble and are experiencing "central sensitization." Best to sleep if you can. Should be OK in AM.

Also may be sinus related. If discolored anterior or posterior nasal drainage, sore throat, upper dental pain this may be acute maxillary sinusitis. If throbbing, nauseating, light sensitivity migraine more likely.
