Sharp pain in between the breasts, goes away after sitting and short breaths. Is it a fluid sac with tissue buildup?

I am 13 years young and I woke up this morning I was lying in my bed and when I breathed in, I got a sharp pain in-between my breasts. I put a big pillow under my sleeping pillow and the pain went away. I have to sit up for the pain in-between my breasts to go away. If I am lying down but take short breaths I feel normal. But when I take normal breaths it really hurts. I read online that it could be a sac of fluid near my heart , tissue building up, and things like that. What could I possibly have?

The problem with reading online is that you do not get a sense of what is more and less likely. Whether many possible explanations for big chest pain that is positional, the most likely is acid reflux. There is a tube from the stomach to the mouth called the esophagus. In order for the stomach to digest food must make quite a bit of acid. Sometimes that acid can bubble up into the chest area via the esophagus. Occasionally people go to the emergency room thinking they're having a heart attack and it's really an esophageal spasm or and or acid reflux. I would recommend that you take a few times next time this occurs and see if it's beneficial. If it is you may want to start with eating smaller more frequent meals with a low carbohydrate content. You should avoid eating and immediately laying down.
if this is beneficial I don't think you have much to worry about. If this does not help then it is going to be time to see a medical doctor.
