Chest pains. Pain while breathing. Any idea what it could be?

Hi, over the past few months I have had infrequent chest pains (once every couple of months). However this past week or two, have been happening more and more often (few times a day). I am 17 years of age, male, and am very fit, as I am on a dance course. I am worried, as it is sharp pains to my chest which only last for a couple of minutes, but hurt when I breathe. Any ideas? Thank you.
