Yes it could be a sinus infection. Try a nasal rinse to see if that helps. I hope you get better soon

Yes, that is completely normal. I have had a head/chest cold for 3 weeks now. And I am very healthy.

Head pressure is common with sinus headaches, and can usually be relieved with an oral decongestant like sudafed.
