In brief: Head first

I am guessing this refers to a pregnacy and it means the head is down and will be delivered first (prefered presentation for vaginal delivery), and is not a breech presentation.

In brief: Head down

Presentation refers to the part of the fetus that will be "presenting" first at birth.
A cephalic presentation is a baby that is head down-- the normal presentation for birth.
