why would you suspect something with your liver? usually the first abnormality that is picked up in patients regarding the liver is an abnormal liver function test on routine bloodwork in an asymptomatic patient. And unless you have a genetic liver disease such as Wilson's disease, hemochromatosis, etc or a viral hepatitis that you got when your were born transmitted from you mother, I would NOT expect that you have any symptom at such a young age. Even if you drink everyday! The other option is an "acute hepatitis" (either hepatitis A,B or more rarely acute hepatitis C and beyond), however besides feeling sick, you would turn yellow, specially your eyes (jaundice).
Weakness is a very broad symptom, but I would start by checking your hemoglobin and making sure you are not anemic.

Hello Raj and thanks for writing in at HCM
You have given a very little detail about your complaints. Wants more history like Are you alcoholic? Smoker? Loosing weight or not? History of jaundice? Your Age? Weight?
But the problem you are facing may be due to Liver Disorder, Cholelithiasis or due to Peptic Ulcers or Just a little Gastritis?
You needs to investigated in detail with cleared clinical history. Investigation you needs are USG abdomen, Liver function test and Heamogram. Consult your doctor with reports.
Best Wishes
