In brief: Pre-eclampsia

Needs to be rapidly excluded especially with a headache - although not the only cause of headaches in pregnancy is the most concerning.
See general information below: https://patient.info/health/pre-eclampsia-leaflet Advise you to seek urgent medical attention from your doctor or an obstetrician if any doubt.

In brief: Yes

elevated blood pressure in pregnancy can cause a headache, but this may be a sign of another condition called preeclampsia.
I would recommend calling your doctor today as they may need to see you to evaluate this
