It could be a tension or a sinus headache.  It could be caused by the way you sleep.  Maybe a better pillow or changing sleep position if your neck is in an awkward position.  You could try relaxing or massaging your neck.  Most sinus headaches need antibiotic treatment.  See a doctor if you're concerned or if you're not getting better.
