A subarachnoid hemorrhage is usually due to the break up of an aneurism of the blood vessel(s) at the base of the brain. A brain aneurism represents a weak wall of a blood vessel, usually a congenital anomaly. An angiography is the only diagnostic procedure used for finding the precise localization of the aneurism. There is nothing you can do at the moment except to wait for further instructions from the expert neurosurgeons so that you can learn more.
