Having a sharp pain in my left breast that only happens when i am leaning over, could it be a pulled muscle?

Unlikely: You describe a positional chest wall pain. This often comes from the back (spine and ribs) not muscle.
See your physician for a spinal exam and to consider working with a physical therapist to work on stretching and postural exercise.
