In brief: Depends

Where does it hurt - a generalized ha may be a concussion.
Scalp pain where you were hit is just soft tissue trauma.

In brief: May or may not

Concussions are usually the result of minor head trauma and are usually sports-induced.
A concussion in an alert person, generally have inattention, slowed responses to questions asked and memory impairment. Headache and nausea are frequently reported symptoms. Since, you have not reported any other symptoms, it may not be concussion, but pain, lasting 7 hrs., can still be a concussion.Thanks.
