17 year-old with a Heart problem?

I'm a 17 year-old male.

I've been having some dull chest pain tightness in the center of my chest for a little over a week now. The pain isn't sharp or painful to the point where it's killing me. It's just a dull, tightness, squeezing type of feel.

Also, I have tenderness pain on my sternum & breastbone. When I poke on the top and bottom, I feel a "bruising-like" sensation.

Sometimes I feel like I have difficulty breathing, but to be honest I'm not sure if it's just my head playing tricks on me. I can ride my bike and run perfectly, and the pain does not worsen, even after using up a lot of energy.

Coughing does NOT make it worse.

Anyways, that's pretty much it.

Does this sound like I might have some heart problem?
