It's okay: Heart palpitation in young/healthy individuals is usually benign. Often it represents a "skipped beat" or premature contraction. Being able to visualize your heart beating in your chest/stomach is common in thin individuals. If your palpitations continue or you pass out then you should see your doctor.
