I was hit incredibly hard in the head at basketball practice and I'm on blood thinners. Should I get checked out? My head still hurts and its 12 hours

In brief: Yes

Most likely to suffered a concussion, which would give you a headache + potential nausea/ vomiting , vision problems, dizziness, etc.
It is not very likely, but you can , potentially, have a subdural hematoma given the blood thinners. It is safer for you to have a head CT to be sure
