In brief: Possibly-needs eval

Its difficult to say if these symptoms are due to a heart problem or not.
Because it is impossible to know without further testing, it is advisable to seek immediate medical attention if these symptoms continue.

You should get an appointment with a cardiologist. You need much more testing. e.g. a Holter monitor worn for 24 hours to record every heart beat to see if the fluttering is an abnormal heart rhythm. Women have different heart symptoms then men. A cbc and cmp will not reveal a heart problem. See a cardiologist please. Let us know how you do.

You may be having some pre-menopausal hormone changes or a thyroid problem. You need a complete exam. See a cardiologist.

In brief: Possibly

It could be something minor like muscle pull but it could also be something serious so please go to your doc and get ekg, cxr, blood test and a stress test.
