Possibly: Do an HCG and an ultrasound. His will eliminate ovarian cysts and other causes for the pain.

No: No one will tell you that you are not pregnant. Get a pregnancy test, it could be a lot of things but generally not a sign of pregnancy.

Not likely: Not likely. However if you are having pain near your ovary and there is the chance you are pregnant, then you need to take a pregnancy test. If you are pregnant then you need to be seen immediately, as this could be a tubal pregnancy.
