7 weeks pregnant and my chest feels tight.

I am nearly 7 weeks pregnant, I have HORRIBLE nausea and my chest feels really tight, like my heart is being squeezed or something. After having unbearable nausea for weeks, I threw up for the first time last night and I seriously had breathing problems while I was doing it. I literally heaved. I remember feeling a tightness in my chest with my last pregnancy, but not until I was in the second to last month and I figured it was the pressure, like heartburn or something. This doesn't really feel like heartburn though, but could it be? It feels the worst when I get up and walk around, which also fuels my nausea. Am I just freaking out for nothing, or this something I should call a doctor about?
