Sinus: If the headaches are on that left side you may have frontal sinus outflow tract obstruction. Warm mist, ibuprofen and an OTC nasal steroid spray will help. Hope you feel better

Mucosal thickening: What you are describing is completely normal with incidental finding of mucosal thickening on MRI. It is very common to see mild sinus mucosal thickening on MRI. It is not diagnostic of sinus infection or sinus obstruction. The cause of your headache is unlikely to be related to your sinuses.
