Thanks for query,
The first possibility is of hyper acidity.
It may be due to oesophagitis ,gastritis or enteritis.
You should take antacid medicines .
Take more milk.
Avoid hot,spicy fried food.
Take small frequent meals.Don't remain hungery or empty stomach.
If this measures doesn't solve your problem consult your doctor.

General Surgeon Dr. Grzegorz Stanko's  Response
Pain in this localization is mostly caused by gallbladder stones (cholelitiasis) or by stomach ulcers.
Abdomen USG will reveal gallbladder stones.
Gastroscopy should be performed to rule out ulcers of your stomach and also will tell if there is an infection of Helicobacter Pylori.
Some basic blood tests needs to be done as there is always a risk of small gallstones migration to biliary tract what may lead to pancreas inflammation (this one is life treating condition).
Until this wont be done it is advisable for you to keep hepatic diet ( no fatty food, no fried food and no alcohol) and do not drink coffee.
Hope this will help
Good luck
