In brief: Probably not pancrea

Pancreatitis which is likely cause of pancreas pain is severe disabling pain with nausea and vomiting.
Likely your pain is under the breastboone and may be ulcer or gastritis. I woulf try Prilosec otc and tylenol (acetaminophen). See your dictor soon and emergently if worsening pain or persistent vomiting.
