Possible Hernia under lower right rib?

Hello... Recently, I noticed a sharp pain in what I thought was my rectus abdominus muscle on the right side near my lower right rib cage. The muscle hurts only occasionally now, but it feels as if something is popping in and out of place when I lift weights, attempt sit ups, or even lean over. I can feel whatever it is moving when I put pressure on that area...occasionally I can feel a small bulge but I don't see anything. The location of the popping feeling seems almost like where my gallbladder would be. I'm 24, athletic and have never had surgery.

I went to my doctor and she said she thought it was a pulled muscle, but I didn't think pulled muscles popped and moved like this? Should I go back to my doctor? Does this sound like a hernia?
