In brief: PVC or PAC

Most likely, you are sensing either premature atrial complexes or premature ventricular complexes.
With a normal echocardiogram, resting ecg, and stress ecg, it is unlikely that you have any real concerns. These are benign. You should be able to determine this with either a 24 hour ambulatory ECG (holter) or an event monitor, but i'm not sure that you need to do any further investigation.
