In brief: Could be...

If you are young and having pain for more than a couple of days, without relation to physical activities, shortness of breath etc.
..Your symptoms could be simply from inflammation in the joints between breastbone and ribs (costochndritis). If you sit perfect still and don't have pain and when you move or breathe then have pain, it could be your chest wall/muscle spasm.. Check with your doc..
