In brief: Get checked

There is a ligament in the groin area called the inguinal ligament.
It commonly gets pulled especially during pregnancy.. Although it is a little early you may benefit from a maternity belt if this doesnt improve in the next 3 or 4 weeks. Let your OB know about it if there is no improvement so they can evaluate.

In brief: Round ligament pain

This sounds like round ligament pain/syndrome which is very very common in pregnancy.
Consider taking some tylenol (acetaminophen) or acetominophen (perfectly safe if not allergic) and rest for a while. If it goes away that's the likely culprit. Be aware it will recur with activity.
