Irregular headaches

For the past few years I have been experiencing irregular headaches about once or twice a month. They do not go away by themselves, by sleep, tea or anything else. The only thing that works is paracetamol so basically I have to take a paracetamol everything I get an headache. Is that normal? Do I need to get some tests?
