Heat for 10 to 20 minutes. Rest/do nothing for another 10 to 20. Then ice it for 10 minutes. Rest and repeat. But make sure you have periods of nothing on your neck. During some of these periods, try to slowly move your neck back and forth. Do not over do it.

I am not a doctor. Although, people will probably recommend you see one. You can also ask your parents for recommendations of what to do.

Other thing to look at. May require another person to help you.

This happens to me sometimes; it's possible the position your head was in during your sleep caused an ache or a cramp. When you sleep tonight, try lying completely on your back (not on your side) with the back of your head on the pillow. ^_^

 

If it doesn't  hurt too much while doing so, you can lightly massage the right side of your neck.
