Family practice : You could have a bladder infection. Spasm of your colon. Constipation or even appendicitis if it persists have someone check you out. If you are sexually active std.

Likely not serious: Putting pressure on the belly button itself can cause some pain because of pressure on nerve endings underneath it. I'll be concerned if there is bulging , fever, vomiting , increasing abdominal pain etc. Follow up with your dr for any concerns
