Can brief sudden chest pain which lasts <1-2 seconds be anything cardiac related without any other symptoms?

That's not typical of cardiac pain. Symptoms from the heart tend to be exertionally related, last at least several minutes up to 20 or 30 (longer for a full blown heart attack) and are not fleeting, lasting only a couple of seconds. Also: angina virtually is unheard of in your age group unless you have diabetes (and then it's very rare).

Not, especially if this is a single episode with no other medical problems. If this is recurrent, better be evaluated. Good luck.
