random left side chest pain

I began having this pain a few times last week, but have had it several times today and right now. It goes away and feels like it is throbbing a little? It's hard to tell sine the pain is achey and dull. It's probably 3 or 4 ribs down from the collar bone, and right of the sternum. Is this something I need to be concerned about? I'm not feeling anything else. Everything seems normal.
