Could this be a hernia or just muscle forming ?

I've been working out for about 4-5 weeks and i've started to notice a lump right under my right rib cage. It's about 2-2 1/2 inches wide, I have a the lump on right under my left rib cage as well but its much smaller, could this be a hernia or just muscle forming ?

Does it move with cough, because that usually happens in hernia. Do test it. Or else it could be a small growth.
