In brief: Possibly

Constipation leads to straining and straining can cause an inguinal hernia which is one cause of groin pain, so i would recommend a check with your general practitioner.

In brief: Maybe

It could be, but if it doesn't go away with a bowel movement, you should get it checked.
In addition, if you haven't had a bowel movement in more than a few days, you should also be seen by a doctor, especially if this is not normal for you.
