For now, the symptoms and a family background of hypertension that you have warrants that you should be closely monitored for sometime before we can say if you are hypertensive or not. The pain might be as a result of many things, but the most likely based on your complaint is what is called Angina pectoris or angina for short. The likely causes of angina include long standing hypertension, abnormal enlargement of the heart from other causes apart from hypertension, atherosclerosis and so on. There are what we call risk factors which increases Someone's chance of having this condition e. g smoking, alcohol intake, obesity, sedentary life style, dietary indiscretion and so on.
It is something serious, that's why you have to be sure it's not the one by seeing a caradiologist who will evaluate you further. Hope this helps
