Needs to be checked: At your age any pain in in left chest needs to be checked.It may be due to chest wall pain, due to gastro esophageal reflux, cardiac pain or from the lungs.
Only way we can say what it may be from by taking a detailed history, doing comprehensive physical exam and if indicated doing imaging tests, blood tests, ekg etc.
So get it checked by your doctor.
