In brief: More detail?

This is unlikely to be due to anything important at this age.
It sounds musculoskeletal (?Sport related) or stress related. Nonetheless if it persists further history and tests are needed.

In brief: Benign chest pain

Brief episodes of chest pain occuring at rest or without exertion is common in young people and is usually not related to the heart.
If there is no connection with activity and no breathing problems it is probably benign. An ekg and possibly an exercise stress test should be done though.
