1- We have a headache.
2- We have headache.

Which one is correct?

I am not a native person, but in my poor opinion, neither is correct, because the noun 'headache' is countable, namely, it should be ''we have headaches''. You can make sure if you google something like this 'we have headaches.....'. I give you a link also : Why do humans have headaches? (see Lecture section also)

I hope you find it useful.

Or, "We both have a headache".
Analogous to "We both had a glass of beer" - It doesn't mean we had the same one.
