can cold/sinus congestion cause a whooshing sound in your ears (my right ear) in certain positions like bending my head forward/towards the right?

Yes it can...: Fluid accumulated in your ears due to congestion can cause this type of symptoms. Usually with plenty of fluids and decongestants gets better in a matter of a few days.
