In brief: Headche and fever

Most importantly that meningitis needs to be ruled out, then sinusitis or any fever cause may be associated with headache.

Severe headache with stiffness of neck will point towards diagnosis of Meningitis Upper respiratory infection can cause headache and fever. congestion in the nose and tenderness at the location of sinus will point towards diagnosis of Sinusitis.

In brief: Need more info

There are many things that are associated with both headache and fever, the most common thing being infection.
Need more information -- how long have you had the fever, any other symptoms like upper respiratory symptoms, cough, sputum, urinary pain, abdominal pain, neck pain? Also age range can change the suspected diagnoses.

In brief: Vague

Need a history and exam to even attempt to come up with an answer. There are many causes of headache/fever issues, and the two may not even be related in some circumstances.
