Increased heartbeat, nausea. Predisposed to heart disease. Cause?

Very recently, my heart has been acting strange. My family and i have been through extreme amounts of stress and I m predisposed to heart disease. I live a mostly sedintary lifestyle, I m 100lbs at 5 6 and my average caloric intake is around 2500 calories a day. But my heart is pounding, often reaching a bpm of120 when I ve done nothing. Once my heart starts pounding i get nauseous and it worries me. I m only 19 but my cousin had a severe tycardia episode at 26. What could cause this?
