In brief: Not necessarily
If you are having an acute episode of sinusitis, a viral upper respiratory tract infection, or allergies, you may have nasal congestion and sinus pressure.
You can get sinus pressure without the nasal symptoms if you have a chronic infection or blockage with changes in pressure.

In brief: No.
The two symptoms do not always occur together. If you have sinus pressure without congestion, you still may have some issue with the nose or sinuses that can be treated.
