In brief: Could be appendix...

The first possibility that comes to mind is appendicitis, which may not cause fever.
Commonly, there's bit of appetite loss / nausea, then belly button (umbilicus) pain which tends to move down to the right lower quadrant (mcburneys point). Certainly it could be another problem, and length of time is important. If gone in 24 hours, probably ok; but if persists +fever or becomes severe, c doc asap.
