Yes: The retina is upside down with the blood vessels in front of the light receptors. These are ordinarily not seen because the retina ignores constant stimuli. When you wake up, the light change and eye motion is inconstant and briefly the retina sees it as a new shadow which is the shadow of your blood vessels. Enjoy the show as it is normal. ...Read more

Your headache could be a symptom of sinus congestion, also allergic. ...Read more

Is it normal to be able to see the blood vessels in the eye?

In or on the eye?: If you mean those that are on the white of the eye, they can certainly be prominent. If they have become this way recently, you should have your eyes examined.

Could be a migraine : I would definitely ask your eye doctor since they have already examined you but, given your age, it sounds like it may be an ocular migraine. Sometimes these migraines give strange visual phenomena (dark spots in vision, zig zag flashing lights) and are not necessarily associated with a migraine type headache. Though they seem scary, they are actually benign. ...Read more
