What do you advise if I have chest pains in 18 year old female?

M.D. visit: Chest pain is most often attributable to muscular and skeletal inflammation. A heating pad and advil (ibuprofen) usually help to relieve the symptoms. If you have a history of medical problems, including obesity, cardiac disease, diabetes for example, this will increase the likelihood that a cardiac or pulmonary problem is causing the pain. It is best to see your physician if the pain persists.

See a doctor.: There are many possible causes for this, such as a lung problem (pneumonia or something more serious), rib contusion, muscle injury or strain, gastroesophageal reflux, among others. It would unlikely for an 18 year old female to have a heart problem causing this, but that and the other possibilities I mentioned can be determined by a visit to your doctor or an ER.
