Unlikely!: Does not sound like typical heart pain but one should have more history (age, duration, circumstances of the production of the pain, other medical conditions etc ! ).

No: At your age, very unlikely to have coronary muscle spasm. Your heart is normal, unless I am not aware of a heart condition. However most likely this is an intercostal or rib pain in the area. Also could be do to muscle spasm as well.
