loestrin & chest pain

I just started taking birth control 6 days ago. I'm at high risk for developing high blood pressure, & I'm a smoker. I'm 20.
Every time after I take the breath I feel a shortness of breath. I can breathe but there's just a hollow feeling in my chest, like I swallowed chlorine or something. It's hard to explain. I know that this could be a sign of a blood clot, but I'm wondering if maybe I'm overreacting and this happens sometimes when just starting birth control.
