The most likely cause of the pain you describe, for a young person (age 20) would be some type of muscle strain or inflammation of the cartilage that makes-up the front end of the ribs and attaches to the breast bone. In that case the site of the pain is usually tender to touch or applied pressure. This type of pain is usually relieved by the use of anti-inflammatory “non-steroidal drugs such as Motrin.
Another common cause is collapse (usually partial) of a part of one’s lung in which the space left by the collapsing lung is filled with air (pneumothorax) and this is common in young people. It is not tender to touch.
If the pain persists, you doctor may want to order a Chest X-ray.
