Heel pain: The symptoms that you described could be planter fasciitis. The first thing you should do is ice your heel and perform stretching exercises. If the pain does not decrease you should follow up with the Podiatrist for further evaluation

Heel spur/fasciitis: You probably have plantar fasciitis or a heel spur. What you are describing is classic symptoms of both. You should look up plantar fasciitis treatments on line and follow the instructions that pertain to icing, stretching, shoe changes (if necessary), and you may end up having to see a foot specialist. This may take a few months to resolve.
