In brief: Find the cause

There are many potential causes for morning headaches such as sleep apnea, uncontrolled bp, caffeine overuse with a withdrawal as the caffeine decreases while asleep, low blood sugar etc.
It is a symptom that needs further evaluation. Hopefully the cause can be determined and corrected or at least managed.

In brief: Vague

Certainly need a lot more info.
Duration, intensity, location. Keep a pain diary if you can and document your headaches. Then consider seeing your doctor. It could be due to grinding your teeth during sleep which tenses the muscles of the face and head.
