While I was boarding a bus a person's elbow hit against my chest rib cage. Now I'm having pain at the affected area. I don't no whether it's fractured or not. But I'm having pain.

Kindly go for xray first if there is swelling on affected part. If there is not swelling then you can go for ice packs on it daily for 10 minutes and 4-5 times a day. Perform deep breathing exercise.
