In brief: I recommend MRI

Ct head scan without contrast is not the perfect test to totally rule out unusual causes of headache.
I would recommend seeing a neurologist and have good evaluation. If any question, you should have MRI of brain without contrast. Radiologist can then add contrast study as needed.
