For Concussion: you must have either loss consciousness or have other symptoms such as feeling dizzy, confused, or have memory problems.
For dangerous bleed: Much more likely from a high speed impact such as a fall. Also, most of the really dangerous bleeds from mild trauma occur from hitting the head on the side such as the temple.
So you're most likely ok..except for the head pain. Good luck and feel better.
