Pain on the rift side behind breastbone. More like pressure than pain. None on left at all. Something to be worried about ?

In brief: Doctor can evaluate

Any person with chest pain has to go to his doctor to be checked for a heart attack.
That means not waiting at home to see if it becomes a bad heart attack. It may turn out to be stomach acid reflux, a lung problem like pneumothorax, or a bone or muscle problem like costochondritis, but the heart attack kills people. As the saying goes, "better safe than sorry", so a visit to the doctor is wisest.
