Sinus headache: It is possible to have headaches from sinus congestion. You should try over-the-counter sinus relief remedies because the headache will improve once the sinus pressure begins to decrease.

Yes: It sounds like it could be sinuses. Use salien wash to flush out your nose with a neti pot and also ibuprofen for the headache. Seek the advice of your doctor to evaluate for antibiotics.
