"Liver" pain: If you are having pain on the right upper side of the abdomen in the region of the liver, it is more likely that you're having pain from the gallbladder or pancreas than from the liver itself. It is important for you to get this evaluated. I would see your doctor or go to the emergency room ASAP. Good luck.
