Although it is impossible to make a diagnosis over the internet, given your age and description of symptoms, it would be very unusual for your chest pain to be from a cardiac etiology. Angina (or chest pain that is a result from coronary ischemia) usually is a substernal pressure that is associated with shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, sweating, and/or neck/jaw/arm pain. It is usually not reproducible to touch and does not often have a pleuritic component (worsening with deep breathing). Other causes of chest pain include problems related to the lung, GI, or musculoskeletal system. I would not be too concerned, but if your symptoms persist, I would suggest you see a licensed physician for further evaluation.
