Acid Reflux/Heart burn?

Not sure if this is Heartburn or not.
but 2-3 weeks back had a bagel and coffee from tim hortons and felt like had heartburn for about 2-3 days.
Has since gone away, but i do get the odd burning/sharp pin like sensation in my left side of my chest, after i eat certain foods. (spaghetti did it, as did mint ice cream) and usually are followed by the urge to belch in the next 2-3 minutes. Also get them if my stomach is empty.
Does this sound like Acid Reflux or heart burn? or something more serious?
