In brief: Loaction, location

It really depends what you call hip pain.
If itis thehip joint it is ususally felt in the groin region. If it is felt along the outside of the pelvis that we would consider bursitis. Does it hur to walk? Does it hurt to lie on your side? It it tender to touch somewhere? You can use heat or even ice, exercises and some otc meds. Your official evalaution will help clarify these issues.
