In brief: Probably not
Though a simple musculoskeletal neck pain, with perhaps some irritation of the occipital nerves, is most likely cause, only an evaluation by your doctor can rule out more worrisome causes.

In brief: Multiple Causes
Muscle spasm or strain is a likely diagnosis.
Others to consider would be occipital neuralgia although the forehead symptoms are a little harder to explain. If it continues, i would suggest getting evaluated.
