Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

The pain in the arm and chest do indicate heart trouble.  It is probably not related to having a stroke because you are not feeling numbness or muscle weakness.

If the pain lasts a few hours or more you should see your doctor right away; especially if your symptoms get worse.  Even though you are very young to have heart trouble it is still not impossible.
