If a pregnant woman has the jaundice of pregnancy, can she still use tylenol (acetaminophen) for headaches?

In brief: Ask you OBGYN

Contrary to popular belief, the use of tylenol (acetaminophen) is not contraindicated in most liver diseases if the total daily dose is < 3000-4000 mg.
The exceptions would be acute tyenol overdose and active alcoholic liver disease. I would ask your obstetrician to ensure there is no contraindications from a fetal standpoint.
