Many thingd: Your nipples are hormones and touch sensitive. The fluctuation of your hormone levels that occur during the month or with pregnancy can cause soreness. Touch stimulation such as with foreplay or from an improperly fitting bra or from going beakers can also cause nipple soreness. If the soreness persists or if you have a nipple discharge or breast lump, i would recommend seeing your doctor for eval.

Increased estrogen: Many women have increased sensitivity or even soreness in the nipples as their estrogen levels increase during their menstrual cycle. Taking estrogen for menopause can also do this. Also, clothing rubbing on the breasts, a poorly fitting bra, or other stimulation can make the nipples sore.Try using nipple shields like nursing mothers use to help prevent continued irritation.

Possibly - UPT?: At your age, anovulatory cycles or pregnancy can both present similarly, so purchase a urine pregnancy test from your local pharmacy to find out for sure. Take Folic Acid if you are sexually active, 1-5 mg daily until the end of your reproductive life.

Sore: Reasons for painful breasts (bilateral) can include: cyclic pain before the period, stress, medication changes. Fluctuating hormone levels & pregnancy. Pain in one breast could be related to a cyst or a fibroadenoma. Breast cancer would not be a frequent reason for breast pain. Exercise with a bra that is lacking in support is also a possible cause. One reason for nipple soreness is friction.
