Exercise headaches are caused by exertion. But sometimes headaches after exercise can be a bleed in the brain.
If the headache is gone in a few hours after exercise  and you have no other  symptoms it's probably OK.But if you have really pounding headaches or headaches accompanied by nausea and vomiting or persistent headache for a few hrs after exercising then I suggest seeing a Neurologist.

Make sure you're well hydrated after exercising and do moderate exercising and stretching before and after a workout .You can also take Tylenol and ibuprofen.If the symptoms persist then see your doctor.
