Best 2 see a Dr.: Pain with swallowing would suggest something in your esophagus is not right. But about any pain in your chest really should be evaluated by a doctor. Pain in the chest can be from the heart from the lungs from the lining of the lung from the esophagus from the rib cage from the muscles on the chest. You're not going to find the answer here on the internet, you actually need to see a doctor.
