Hit head getting out of car last night. I hit the back/top kinda hard. Tender to touch and some headache. Should I go to doctor? Brain bleeding?

In brief: You must have hit

your head pretty hard Jonathan if it still hurts.
Brain bleeding is unlikely (as is pregnancy which you list next to your gender (male). Sometimes people injury their neck, scalp and the tissues between the skull and scalp. If you have dizziness, change in sleep, attention, speech, vision or other neurological symptom. by all means go get checked out.

In brief: Head trauma

Unlike that you suffered a concussion or brain bleeding.
If you develop a headache that doesn't resolve with acetaminophen or ibuprofen or if dizziness or nausea develops then see a doctor.
