popping feeling under right rib cage
I hope you can help me.  Under my right ribs I can feel something hard, and when I move a certain way, I can feel it pop or catch.  I am so scared that it is something serious.

Impossible to tell without an exam but it sounds like you are describing costochondrial dislocation. This is where the junction between the rib and the cartilage pops out intermittently. This usually is quite painful and is reproduced by specific motions. X rays don't typically help but the physical exam is diagnostic.
