I would get it checked out just to make sure it isn't anything. It most likely isn't. I work in a pediatrics department and pain near the belly button is mostly associated with constipation. It is a growing problem these days with the way everyone eats.
I had the same thing about 2 weeks ago. It lasted for a few days. I think it was constipation or gas or something like that. If it doesnt clear up in a couple of days, I would also suggest calling the doc just to make sure that it isnt anything more. Good luck!
