Is it very serious if I had a bad headache after 2-3 hours on the computer?

In brief: Probably not

Most likely it is just a headache from the fact you were on the computer for 3 hours.
If it persists or becomes " the worst headache of your life" then you should probably get it checked out.

In brief: Muscle contraction

Your headaches are either due to muscle contractions due to posture or due to eye strain.
You can try stretching every hour or so; just get up from your desk, stretch your neck and shoulders. You can try warm compresses over the neck and temples for about 10 minutes twice daily.
