Brief Answer:
Gastrc issues are more likely

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for query,
As you age is just 31 chances of it being cardiac are too low unless you are a chronic smoker or a tobacco abuser.

So if you are a nin smoker go for simple ecg.
In case you are smoker 2 d echo should be done.
if these tests are normal you are having acid peptic reflux disorder or gastritis.
It cause soft tissue injury and inflammation in gut wall and esophagus causing pain of nature you described.
Sternum and nearby arear are usually involved.
An endoscopy has to be done to ruke out the cause.
For time being would suggest you to take Omeprazole 40 mg once daily with a glass of chilled milk.
Take any over the counter antacid syrup along with it.
Follow up with reports!
Take care!
