I'm wondering if your code hasn't made a sort of infinite loop. I'm assuming that the source code you've posted is for the file, kontakt.php. If so, when your code executes, it will hit your header redirect in Line 1 and continue redirecting over and over until the browser breaks the loop for you. Try something like the following:

if (!isset($_GET['status']) || $_GET['status'] != 'hvala') { header('Location: kontakt.php?status=hvala'); } else { echo '<p class="message-info">Well done!</p>'; }
