I've been experiencing some discomfort in the back lower part of my head.It feels really weird.What is that? Do I have a tumor or a forming blood clot?

Hard to tell: Although it is probably not emergent, there can be a pathology contributing to the sensation you describe. I would make an appointment with your doctor so they can rule some possibilities like tumor, muscle pain, infection, etc. A blood clot that moves to the brain is a medical emergency.
