In brief: Get checked out
You should get it checked out right away to rule out heart disease, especially if you are older and have lots of other medical problems.
There are many causes for chest pain (musculoskeletal, gastrointestinal, cardiac, lung, etc) and a detailed history and physical and possibly more extensive testing are needed to define the source.
