Let me help you.
The symptoms you described are more suggestive of sinsuitis - just like you thought.
The dripping in your throat that you mentioned is known as post nasal drip and this is commonly associated with sinus congestion.
Since the symptoms are mild, it is probably related to some viral infection.
And most viral infections resolve spontaneously.
However sometimes there are possibilities of bacterial contamination which leads to severe symptoms.
I also suggest you the same.

Warm liquids like warm ginger tea will also make you feel better.
You should feel better with these measures.
Should I take the Tablet only when I have headache or do I need to take it regularly?
Yes, I followed. Thanks
As you said the headache is only mild, you can take it whenever the pain becomes bothersome.
If the headache is present continuously,
you can take it three times a day after your meal.
Do you have any other query?
Yes, I also feel strain in the eyes. I'm not sure if this too is related to Sinusitis
You may have other prodromal symptoms such as weakness, eye strain, reduce appetite and so on with viral infection.
