Right side?: If the pain is from the belly button into the right lower quadrant and you still have your appendix you need to go to the ER. If you have no appendix then options could be an ovarian cyst, colitis or a kidney stone.

Many things: Ovarian cysts, appendicitis (usually on the right, but can be pain on left), colitis, diverticulitis, endometriosis to name just a few. Could be gas pains as well. You need to get to a doctor to have an examination and proper workup to determine the cause, and ultimately the treatment.
