Right side of my chest and neck hurts when I breath in deeply. ?

Perhaps serious.: There are a variety of things that could cause this. If it just started happening hours or minutes ago and it is getting worse, seek immediate medical attention because it could be a heart attack or a pulmonary embolism.

Chest pain?: If you have chest pain on deep breath, it suggests pleurisy - inflammation of the outside lining of your lung (the "pleura") but that wouldn't explain neck pain. If the pain if primarily confined to your neck, an overstretched or injured muscle is more likely . A neck injury with nerve root traction could cause pain in both areas - at 17, you're too young for arthritis. ...Read more

Muscles- skeletal : most likely, in your case it's the muskuloskrletal system. Maybe you pulled a muscle? Strained? Lifted a heavy weight? Less likely cause for you can be from your heart, or lungs. Now until you have risk factors heart is unlikely. If you have fevers, cough, phlegm, lungs might be affected. See a doc if concerned ,Especially if travelled recently or any risk for blood clots.

Dull/sharp pain in upper left side of chest above breast and into neck. 
Hurt worse to breath in?

Pleurisy or costochondritis: Costochondritis is an inflammation often caused by a virus in the Cartlidge in your ribs it will hurt when you breathe and if you press on it. If it hurts when you breathe but not if you press on it it's more likely pleurisy. If it's not too bad heat and anti-inflammatories like Motrin will help.
