In brief: See your doctor
Pelvic pain on one side in early pregnancy may be due to the corpus luteum cyst which produced the follicle that resulted in your pregnancy.
Unfortunately, it could also be a sign of an ectopic pregnancy which could be dangerous. Your doctor can do an ultrasound and possibly a blood test to determine the exact cause. Good luck!
