Child with heart pain, upper side, looking pale. Should i be concerned?

My 7 year old has been saying his heart hurts and typically shows me the upper right side. I have started keeping track of when he says this, but there is no pattern so far. Once was when he got up in the morning, last night was after school while reading. He is very active and never likes to sit down. He does not play sports, but loves PE class. Recently he has been saying how tired he is, and looking a little pale.
