In brief: Probable strain

Most often in these situations you have done something to strain a muscle but don't remember exactly what activity might have caused it.
Gentle stretching is a good idea, and icing it using Ziploc bag of crushed ice or a bag of frozen peas for 20 minutes two to three times a day. I would give it a couple of more days, and if it persists would considering calling your primary care provider.

In brief: Several options

Pinched nerves in your lower back, muscle strains, and less likely blood clots could cause these symptoms.
Try ibuprofen and acetaminophen, and if that is not helping you should see a physician to be evaluated.
