In brief: Maybe sinus pain
The bones behind the eyebrows have hollow spaces (sinuses) that can become plugged up and become infected (sinusitis).
Sinusitis can happen after colds, allergies, or sometimes without a preceding illness. Mild symptoms can be treated with over-the-counter medications, but bothersome pain, increasing symptoms, or prolonged symptoms need a doctor's evaluation.

In brief: Could be a sinus HA
This could be associated with a sinus infection or a severe cold.
I would see your doctor to rule out other causes.
