Short one-sided headaches

I keep getting these pressure-like headaches in a spot in the left side of my head. I've been getting them for years but they happen in episodes lasting a few weeks then don't reappear for a year or more. It seems to be brought on by stress (I'm almost upon my exams and I'm fast-tracking a language for an impromptu work placement abroad) and are sometimes brought on by a sudden increase in heart rate, such as when I climb the stairs. They last about five seconds and can recur every five or ten minutes. I thought they might be cluster headaches but I've heard they're extruciating, and these really aren't, they just feel like someone is suddenly pressing on my brain (I don't know how else to describe it!). Should I get it checked out or is this quite normal for stress? I'm a little worried that it's only ever in one patch of my head and has been since I can remember.
