I do not have enough information to give you a complete answer.  Most adolescents who get discomfort in the chest have muscle or bony joint pain.  It is usually not heart pain.  If the chest pain only occurs with exertion, then you should tell your parents and be seen by your physician to get a good examination.  They will decide if you need to see a heart specialist.
