Likely non cardiac: based on the limited information I can tell you that at the age of 21 it is almost impossible to have heart related chest pain and other life threatening causes of chest pain. it is likely muscle skeletal pain, although anxiety can be the cause too. recommend see a doctor for this for proper diagnosis and treatment
