In brief: Many possibilities

You could have ulcer disease, acid reflux, hernia, gallbladder inflammation or stones, gastritis, or gastroenteritis, and so on.
Is your pain acute or chronic, any triggers, etc? Lipase neg makes pancreatitis unlikely. US neg makes gall stones less likely. CMP nl means normal liver function and bilirubin. See your doctor or GI. Cancers usually not common in your age group.

In brief: Need further testing

Ultrasound is not always a very reliable test for abdominal pain.
It may not show problems such as an Ulcer of the stomach which can cause this type of belly pain. If your pain does not go away with simple measures, you need to ask your doctor to send you to a specialist(gastroenterologist) who may need to do EGD(Endoscopy) and or other tests to resolve this problem.
