Is chest pain in a 5 year old dangerous?

Our family practitioner says maybe it was just a virus, but this child rarely complains about anything. For the past two days she gets chest pain when running or jumping. She also has a heart murmur. I don t want to be an overprotective Mom, but I am worried. Should I take her to the emergency room?
