In brief: Maybe an infection

Teens with headache and fever in the winter usually have the flu, the strep throat, or some other infection.
With 3 days of fever, a teen should be seen by her doctor, who can do an exam and discuss her other symptoms, to get a diagnosis. Some infections will need medications such as antibiotics or antivirals.

In brief: See the doctor

It could be a simple viral infection but with headache history i would take her to the doctor to be evaluated.
