headache + minor nose bleeds are symptoms of something?

i have been having really bad headaches, for the past 2 weeks and only 2 days ago, i started getting minor nose bleeds, in 2 days i had 5 nose bleeds, but minor ones. i dont know what to do, do you think it has to do with my respiratory system ?  or anyways.

The somewhat limited information you provide does not suggest that yours is primarily a respiratory problem, with the possible exception of acute sinusitis.  There is a generally accepted correlation between hypertension and headache; it is commonly held that there is also a correlation between nose bleeds and high blood pressure, but that is doubtful.  There are too many possible causes of headaches from migraine to hypertension to tumors to infection to leaking blood vessels and strokes, and so we cannot speculate on the cause of your headache.

We do, however, strongly recommend that you seek medical assistance without delay, because  two weeks of headaches is grossly abnormal, especially if you are unaccustomed to such headaches.  You should call your doctor now and if he/she cannot arrange to see you, you should at least go to his/her office, or to the nearest ER, to have your blood pressure checked.

Good luck
