real or fake? how do I know

So this morning I was driving to class and I start getting this really bad pain in my back and stomach then my stomach gets tight and it stays like that for a few minutes then when I was in class it happened again for a few minutes then again when I was driving home and like a couple more times all day and they are still happening every so often. Are they contractions and if so how do I know if they are real or fake? What should I do? I am 25 weeks pregnant almost 26
