In brief: Epigastric pain

Probably warrants a visit to a gastroenterologist.
The discomfort and belching may just be reflux that might respond to a trial of an over the counter medication like otc Prilosec or similar. The weight loss is worrisome and along with the other symptoms needs to be further evaluated.

Blood test for h pylori is not a reliable test,you need to have an endoscopic exam of your upper gi tract to rule out gerd,esopagitis,pepcid ulcer and other conditions,you need to see a gastroenterologist asap
