In brief: Many possiblities
Unfortunately without much more information (such as the circumstances of the discomfort, your age, and the presence of cardiovascular risk factors) there is no way to know what the likelihood is of a cardiovascular cause of pain.
Cardiac pain, musculoskeletal pain, pleurisy, pneumonia, reflux can all cause this. If it is persistent then an evaluation with a doctor is advised.
