No one can say for certain what you are experiencing unless it gets captured on a monitor however it sounds like you are having ectopic (extra) beats, pacs if they are occurring in the atria or pvcs if they are occurring in the ventricles.  In isolated numbers in a healthy heart they are not considered a health threat.  That said, you should probably just go and get a check up with the doctor and let them know what you are feeling. It is important to have the heart evaluated to be in strong working order to declare the extra beats as just a nuisance but more than likely you will just need to try and avoid things that trigger them like acid reflux, sugary and spicy foods, stress/anxiety, and caffeine.   So again just go and get checked out but if there is no known history of congenital heart disease in your family you probably have nothing to fear.  Take care.
