Detailed Answer:
Hello Mr xxxxx
I really appreciate your concern
Mild headache might be related to fatigue, viral fever, variation in blood sugar and blood pressure and many other reasons

Here I would like further information to guide you better
If possible please upload me all the blood reports including blood sugar,
Which area of head is aching, frontal or occipital or side of the head?
Do you consume liquor or smoke?
Are you having any difficulties in vision or maintaining your gait and posture?
Nature and intensity of pain, is it throbbing or shooting pain

In my opinion you can take paracetamol 500mg for headache and write back to me with these details so that I will be able to tell you more accurately.

Brief Answer:
Vascular headache or migraine

Detailed Answer:
Looking at your description and nature of headache ( throbbing ) might be related to Migraine or vascular headache or gaint cell arteritis of superficial vessels.

In my opinion you should consult a neurologist for physical examination and an MRI or MRV to establish a diagnosis.
Meanwhile you can take acetaminophen for symptomatic relief.
Try to identify any trigger for headache and avoid it.
Take rest in quiet room during headache.
