In brief: Possibly

Tick bites can carry infectious diseases of which headaches are one of the main symptoms.
If you are concerned, seek medical care.

There is a wealth of information missing to answer that question.
Do you have a spider bite? Where is it? When did it occur? Where is the headache? When did it start in relation to the spider bite? A good history often reveals what is really going on. So yes is only one possible answer and depends on the history.
