In brief: Several possibles

What to do depends on the severity of the pain and how long it has gone on for. If there is fever it needs evaluation right away.
If it is mild or relieved by antacids, you may have gastritis/GERD or an ulcer. If sharp and it goes through to your back it can be pancreatitis, or if it is episodic and comes in waves, it may be a stone in your bile duct. If not better seek an evaluation.
