In brief: Probably not

It is unlikely that a 23 year old woman will have a cardiac problem, albeit unlikely does not mean impossible.
If the problem recurs, i would seek medical attention.

That feeling was probably from a begnin PVC (premature ventricular contraction) which occurs when there is an extra beat interjected into the heart's normal rhythm. The 'extra' beat feels as if the heart has stopped, followed by a vigorous contraction which is not dangerous. If recurrent and frequent, seek medical attention.
