In brief: Probably not

The combination of a headache and a conjunctival hemorrhage is concerning for very high blood pressure.
This is something that should be checked out right away especially if there are visual changes.

In brief: It may be

It is not altogether uncommon to either experience a brief episode of discomfort around the time of the popped blood vessel (subconjunctival hemorrhage), or even a mild headache.
If blood pressure is significantly elevated it can cause both headaches and subconjunctival hemorrhages, and can lead to a stroke. See your doctor immediately to rule out blood pressure issues.
