In brief: May or may not

Chest pain can be caused by muscular reason, like costochondritus, or cardiovascular disease, like angina, heart attack, or lung diseases.
Since you have high blood pressure, that is one of the risk factor for ischemic heart disease. You should see your doctor to check it up.
