Two days ago my doctor gave me antibiotics for a sinus infection, which i have to take 3 times for a day for week.
Since taking them, i find that my headaches are more frequent and a little more painful, is this normal?
If not, Should i continue taking them for the rest of the week, or should i stop taking them and go back to the doctor?

I'd suggest calling your doc and telling him/her about it and asking for further advice. You probably won't actually need to go in for a visit, medication changes (if necessary) can be made over the phone.

Have you ever had bad or allergic reactions to antibiotics or penicillin before?

I would definately call your doctor because you could be allergic to that type of medicine. My mom's friend had recently had a sinus infection and he was on Viaxin, I believe. It made him, and his wife, very sick -- since both of them were on it.

So check it out, it doesn't hurt to ask your doctor or even your knowledgeable pharmacist. =].
