Head cold for 8 days. Blocked ears/pressure/hearing loss for 7 days. Intense, constant tinnitus for the past 2 days. Should I be worried? Thank you.

In brief: Not yet

The general consensus in our specialty (ENT) is that an 8 day history of your symptoms is a viral upper respiratory infection.
An antibiotic is not needed at this time. Unfortunately, you have tinnitus or perception of sound in the ear which is a central (auditory nervous system) problem. If you are not significantly better in 3 to 4 weeks consult an otolaryngologist.
