Pain around right lower abdomen - comes and goes with movement and hurts in specific spots when I press down on it... How long until I should suspect appendicitis, what should I look for out for? What else could it be? Don't think it's trapped gas.

In brief: See a gynae

Appendicitis is usually of short duration - meaning you get very sick in a very short space of time.
It is associated with fever, nausea and vomiting.
At your age gynaecological reasons are likely - such as ovarian cysts, ectopic pregnancy, infection. It may be worth your while to consult a gynaecologist.
