Brief Answer:
Stones in the bile ducts.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.

Thank you for the query.

It ca be a stone in the bile ducts as well as the peptic ulcer. If you have had any fatty foods recently, pancreas can be causing the pain.
I suggest you to have abdominal utrasound and blood work done. Gastroscopy should be considered as well.

Hope this helps.
Regards.
