Nothing to worry regarding your CT findings. It is just an incidental finding. If you are experiencing symptoms frequently. Then take migraine prophylaxis

Your headache may not be related to the CT scan findings. Arachnoid cyst and a pineal lesion does not require surgery always. I would suggest to get an MRI first to find our more details about the cysts you mentioned. Consult Neurosurgeon with MRI to clarify your doubts.
