In brief: Ectopy
The heart beats by electrical conduction system through the cardiac muscles - sometimes it can skip a beat or beat irregularly - these are known as arrythmias.
There are benign kinds (such as psvt, pvc) and more dangerous kinds such as atrial fibrillation. An ekg will give you the answer.
