In brief: yes

Mild heart attacks don't show on the rest ecg.
You do need further tests and treatment for coronary artery disease.

In brief: troponin

Elevated troponin with a symptom complex consistent with heart attack is defined as a heart attack.
Other possibilities exist but this is by definition a heart attack.
