Everything i eat/drink makes my chest become tight and i notice my heart rate more. Could this be gas, a hiatal hernia or something else?

In brief: Maybe spasms

The first thing you must check is that your heart is ok.
At 22 years of age, it almost certainly is. Esophageal spasms could easily be a cause of your symptoms, and this can be determined with an test called manometry, which involves a tube in your nose for 15' or so. Referral to a GI doctor should be considered.
