Dull pain on the chest, palpitation, difficulty in breathing. What is happening?

Hello, I don t know exactly how to describe my question. But I am a seventeen year old female, I get kind of scared sometimes because I get a dull pain in my chest , it feels like my heart speeds up randomly for a few second, afterwards I find it hard to breathe. Though it only takes me a minute to recover it scares me still. It happens two - three times a month.
