Yes: Yes. If you have not had your period, get a test. If it's negative, repeat it in 7-10 days if you have not menstruated.

Who knows: A headache is not necessarily a sign of implantation. Neither is cramping. Most women can not feel implantation. Take a pregnancy test if your period doesn't show when it's supposed to.
