Experiencing an increased resting heart rate. What could be causing this?

Ive been having problems with my heart the past three weeks or so. Even when resting my heart will start to beat extremely hard and fast. I ve been staying hydrated thinking that was the problem but everyday the problem continues to worsen. Nothing really triggers it it s more of a random occurance. I m aware it could be anxiety or stress but I m fairly stress free. But I m young and healthy so I don t see where this problem could have come from?

thank you for query
it is palpitation and causes of palpitation are-
Heart palpitations are common in all age groups. “Heart palpitations among women and younger patients usually have a benign cause. Men and older patients are more likely to have palpitations caused by arrhythmias .
Benign heart palpitations can be triggered by:
•     Stress
•     Anxiety and panic attacks
•     Excessive caffeine or alcohol
•     Nicotine
•     Stimulant medications (weight loss pills, cough and cold medicine)
•     Fever
Avoiding caffeine, alcohol and quitting smoking can help.
