In brief: If

If you think you may have pneumonia then you should see a doctor because bacterial pneumonia requires antibiotics, meaning the body will not "heal itself.
" chest heaviness and slight fever are very non-specific symptoms. A more detailed history, a physical exam, and necessary testing will help in making a diagnosis and directed treatment. Hope you are better soon.
