In brief: Yes

Yes but sometimes headaches (which might seem related to stress) are due to other reasons.
Touch base with a doctor, if they continue.

In brief: Absolutely

One of the most common causes of headaches and migraines is stress.
But there could be many potential reasons for your headaches. The best thing to finish keep a headache diary to try to identify potential triggers that are causing your headaches. Write down what you ate, how much sleep you get the night before, stress, etc and look for patterns.
