What causes your heart to increase to slightly over 100 and you can feel it race/pound when sitting and not changing position? Then it comes back down

In brief: Atrial fibrillation

Tell your doc what you just mentioned and ask for either a holter or event/loop monitor. The former works best if you have symptoms daily while the latter works best if you have symptoms every few weeks to a month.
Atrial flutter & frequent pvcs can also do this. But it's still best to see your doctor for analysis.
