Yes: See an md right away. Your symptoms definitely sound heart related. Many conditions can cause a rapid heart rate and its important to have an accurate diagnosis so treatment can be started.

Yes: Your symptoms sound heart related. You will need a complete physical, ekg, and lab work to rule out medical conditions like thyroid disease. Your doctor may want to place you on a holter monitor to 'capture' the fast heartbeat, and prescribe medications to keep your heart rate under control, or treat any underlying medical conditions. See a doctor asap!
