Arm pain: Pain with arm movement is likely the arm/shoulder. Pain with neck movement suggests nerve pain from a herniated disc. Neither urgent if not progressing. Ok to try some nsaids, ice/heat for a couple days. Typically, these usually improve over several weeks. Pain that does not deserves a doc evaluation.
