In brief: Many possibilities
There is lots of pain and discomforts that are mechanical in nature and "normal.
" while this could be the case, it would be reasonable to expect an evaluation including exam with cervical check, possible vagianl cultures, fetal fibronectin test (a test for preterm labor), and labs like a urinalysis and culture if indicated. An ultrasound is probably indicated also.
