In brief: Need more info

if headache persists with neck stiffness when bending head down, light bothers you, you had recent viral illness this could be viral meningitis.
its self limiting with supportive care and no treatment needed but if you get high fevers, you may need to go to ED to get lumbar puncture to rule out bacterial meningitis.
