Is a headache after a tick bite a matter of concern?

I think i was bit by a lone star tick today. I found him and removed him about a hour ago. It had a small white dot on its back. I googled it and seen it matched the lone star tick. I have a headache but I get them pretty regular. Should I be concerned?
