In brief: See your dentist

It doesn't necessarily mean a cavity.
You could have a fracture of the tooth or you could have some isolated periodontal disease with the tooth. You might also have some clenching or grinding habit that irritates the structures supporting the tooth.

In brief: Not usually

Cavities are usually without symptoms until they are large.
Although sweet sensitivity can be a symptom of even small cavities at times. Pain on chewing can indicate other problems that should be addressed by a dentist.
