In brief: Need to be seen

There are several conditions that could give those symptoms and more possibilities in a female.
In both genders appendicitis , colitis, and low urinary tract stone or infection should be considered. In women need to consider ovarian cyst, ectopic pregnancy and pelvic inflammatory disease. A good history, exam, and lab testing can point in correct direction but may need radiology for confirmation.

In brief: Right Pyelonephritis

While Dr. Rankin is correct that the differential diagnosis (a list of everything this could be) includes many serious possibilities, what you describe is almost certainly a right kidney infection (confirmed if a tap on your back inside the corner formed by your spine and the lowest right rib causes a searing pain).
and you need an appropriate antibiotic right away. Go to the ED now.
