So today my right boob has hurt. Almost like its engorged but its not. He seems to be having no problem getting milk out or latching. If you split my right boob in two it is sore more on the left half...make sense?  Could this be normal or could manstits(Sp?) sor clogged duct? what can i do to help get it to go away?

sounds like a clogged duct. If it gets infected it can become masitis.

Rest, heat, massage, nurse, nurse, nurse. Stay well hydrated.

Nice hot bath or shower, and look for the sorest spot or lump, and massage. Try to start lo nursing on that side more often.

A hot shower, heating pad, etc. should help sooth it.  Also light massage and nurse from that side more today.

Have you tried nursing baby from different directions? Upside down, sideways etc.....the baby can sometimes get the duct moving. Peace to you.
