In brief: Several things

Chest pressure could be a heart symptom such as palpitations or coronary disease.
It could also be a musculoskeletal issue or even a lung problem. Speak to your physician to ensure its nothing serious.

In brief: Chest wall strain

This is most likely chest wall strain due to physical or emotional stress -- but you need to see your doctor anyway and get yourself evaluated properly.
