In brief: Medical clearance

First obtain medical consultation to make sure it is not cardiac related.
If not treat as anxiety and try not to panic that something is wrong with your heart. Try to follow a simple behavior program for anxiety management .

In brief: Take your pulse

Check your pulse and you can see for yourself : normal HR is 50-100 at rest and should generally be regular with sometimes a rare skip.
