There are many: different reasons for a patient to feel their heart racing. Some are physiological and some are pathological. Information such as how fast and associated symptoms help to differentiate this. From what you have provided it is probably not serious. A long term monitor (30 or more days) might catch something. Discuss this with your health care provider.
