In brief: Emergency
A dilated pupil and headache can be an emergency, and you must see an ophthalmologist urgently.
It can be due to disasters like carotid dissection and aneurysm and tumor. But most likely, its due to atypical migraine, adies pupil or a horners syndrome, which are usually benign.

In brief: Serious problem
There are many very serious conditions that can cause headache and a dilated pupil, so you need to get this checked out.
If all the tests are negative, see your neurologist to check for a more benign conditiojn such as adies tonic pupil.
