In brief: Try some tylenol (acetaminophen)

How bad is your headache? If it's mild to moderate, tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen may help.
If it is the worst headache you have had in your life, you should go to the emergency room. If it's bad but not the worst, make an appointment with your doctor to discuss treatment.

In brief: Get checked out

A good start at finding potential headache triggers would be to maintain a diary.
Every time you have a headache write down what you were doing, the foods you ate that day, alcohol, smoking, caffeine, stress, how much sleep you had the night before, eye strain, etc. Try to find patterns in your headache so that you can learn what things to avoid. Get checked by your doctor.
