In brief: Possibly migraine
The classic presentation for a migraine headache is pain on one side of the head, often with a pounding quality and associated with nausea and/or sensitivity to light.
That being said, there are multiple other primary headache disorders that cause lateralized pain, and these can be treated in many different ways. A neurologist can rule out dangerous possibilities and recommend treatment.

In brief: Exam and history
Too vague a question without having a thorough history and an examination.
Too many variables when attempting to determine the cause of a headache. The cause, severity and location of the headache are very important.
