Welcome to HCM.

It is difficult to predict without examination but based on the information you have provided, i think it is either due to anxiety / your subjective feeling or may be you might be suffering from some respiratory tract infection.

It is more of anxiety than anything else. I advice you to speak with your parents and you will be fine.

If the symptom persists it will better if you go for x ray chest and ECG AND to see physician.

Hope I have provided the information you needed.
Wish you good health. Take care.

It seems you are freightened after watching the show.Try to calm down,try to recollect the things which are happy,try to focuss on your breathing,take slow inspiration and expiration and concentrate on that,and divert yourself on some other activity which you enjoy.
