In brief: Likely not ur heart

Given the description of your symptoms this is unlikely to be heart related pain.
If it hurts more with sitting try pressing on the area while laying down and see if it is tender. If the bone is tender and it hurts to breathe, you most likely are suffering from costochondritis, which is a benign inflammation of the ribs. You can treat it by taking Ibuprofen with meals.
