I breathed in and at the bottom of my ribs

Patient : I breathed in and at the bottom of my ribs there was a huge stabbing pain if I breathed in deep. Eventually I just took a really deep quick breath and the pain went away. But I also felt like a gross little squishy "pop" like something moved out of the way in that area. (Sorry for the weird description). I've been having weird sore pains, sometimes a little numb, in my legs as well for about a year on and off. Im worried it may be blood clots or something similar. I've had the sharp pains in the upper chest/shoulder area before rarely throughout the past 10+ years, but never before at the bottom of my rib cage like that. I'm 21 and on the pill for 3 months now. I feel like I should get off it, but I want to know if there's anything else that could be causing my problems. I would visit my doctor, and plan to, but I don't know what I'm looking to do. How can they check for blood clots? Can I get an ultrasound; should I get bloodwork? Sorry for so many questions, thanks for your time.
