In brief: Urgent care

Stabbing chest pains persisting for three days could have a number of different causes.
Best to get to an urgent care clinic as soon as possible for evaluation and treatment.

In brief: See below

With such limited information I can't comment on what may be causing your pain.
But in general left sided chest pain in an 18 year old person can be caused by costochondritis, chest wall strain, Shingles or less likely pulmonary embolism. If the area is tender to touch and reproducible by twisting at the waist or bending to either side it's more likely to be a temporary chest wall strain.
