I am having painless muscle spasms directly below my right breast near rib cage, what causes this? could this be stress related?

Many causes: Are they muscle twitches? Could be fatigue or stress or mineral deficiency? They are painless so I guess they are not bothering you? Observe and if worse and gets painful then see your doc.
