I have a bump between my breasts. It feels hard and hurts when i touch it. I don't know if its just a pimple or something else?

In brief: Likely benign

At 19 the risk of breast cancer is low.
But you could have a carbuncle which is an inflamed follicle/sweat gland. Similar to a pimple. Warm compresses to the area will usually draw out the infection but you should see your pcp for eval.

In brief: Sounds like:

It sounds like a pimple, or an infected sebaceous gland.
I would try applying hydrogen peroxide and warm compresses to the area several times per day, if it doesn't get better, then see your doctor for further treatment options.
