In brief: Remotely possible

You have a nice low resting heart rate which suggests some degree of cardiovascular conditioning.
The sensation of needing to take a deep breath and some chest pressure is most often linked to anxiety...more worried if the pressure feeling worsened when exercising and improved with rest. Or you were actually short of breath or had palpitations. Do some deep breathing, relax. To Doc if persists.
