You should not be concerned about your blood pressure, as it might be raised due to the viral infection, which is also the cause for your headaches. You can consult your pharmacist for over the counter flu medication. Keep yourself well hydrated and get a lot of bedrest. You can consult your doctor for an examination and a short course of oral antibiotics if a secondary infection of the throat and sinusses is present.
