Thanks for your query
If you do not have any risk factor like diabetes of lipid disorder, or a congenital heart diasese, then it is unusual to have a cardiac problem at this age. But if the problem of palpitation is persisting or increasing then you must see a cardiologist where you need to be physically examined and a few other tests like echocardiography, stress test may be required to rule out a cardiac issue. ECG being normal does not always mean that everything is fine.
Take care.
