Left chest pain when deep inhaling

ytt
It's been about two days I am feeling some pain in my left chest when I deeply inhale air, it mildy hurts,   im coughing, sometimes I spit yellow sputum when I first wake up in the morning,
every time I cough it leaves a weird taste.
I refused to go to hospital because of this pandemic and also because I felt this way a few months ago like this time is actually the fifth time I am feeling this and I somewhat knownthat it will be ok in a few days, so.
I don't feel tired nor short of breath, it just pain,when inhaling
The pain is alwaysin the same side
I never smoked in my life, I am 27 yo, my father is fighting a lung cancer now but he stopped smoking sincelike 10years ago..
What could be this thing? I know the best way is to go to the hospital and get checked, but this could be bronnchitis?
Currently it is winter in my country, my house seems very humid air and I see mold spots which I clean,  but even in the summer I remember feeling this, actually it started in November 2019 , I never went to the doc to get checked because it seems to get better in days
Now, all of a sudden the pain subsided , I can inhale deep without feeling pain, well just feels something weird but not pain, but I still cough

Hello and welcome to the forum.  You should always been seen by a doctor if you are having chest pain.  Probably not anything to worry about but to be safe, please see your doctor.  I understand the pandemic puts more fear in seeing a doctor but perhaps your regular doctor will provide a virtual appointment in which you can go over what is happening and get guidance.  I think it is important to have doctor guidance.  Typically coughing up the yellow or green sputum can mean bronchitis.  Since this keeps happening, it's time to see a doctor, either in person or vitrually.
