So just today, the last day of my period [I finally got it] I have just had the most terrible headache and it was here and there from the morning until the night. I'm not sure if it's just a regular headache or if I should be worried about the Pill. I've just started on a new pack just yesterday. Should I be worried about something or is it normal?

It says in the booklet I got given at the family planning place when I got my pill, that headaches are a common, minor side effect, same as spotting and sore breasts.
I've just started my second pack about two weeks ago too, and I had a headache last week but its gone now. I also had spotting for my first month but that's gone now too.
I got really worried when I had my headache too, and Id had abdominal pains for a day or two as well, but they went away. I dont really think there's anything to worry about right now, as you can get any number of the various side effects at any time, and they can come and go randomly. But if it persists for a long time then maybe you should ask your gyn about it.
