Do I have a fatty liver?

I'm 21 years old and started drinking when I was 17. When I first started I would drink once or twice a week and have somewhere between 8 and 12 drinks when I got to college that pace picked up a little bit my freshman year. After my sophomore year it slowed down, I still drink on average probably twice a week... show more I'm 21 years old and started drinking when I was 17. When I first started I would drink once or twice a week and have somewhere between 8 and 12 drinks when I got to college that pace picked up a little bit my freshman year. After my sophomore year it slowed down, I still drink on average probably twice a week but average somewhere around 6 drinks when I do. Lately I've had some dull pain in my upper right abdomen where I think my liver is located. Is this a sign of fatty liver disease? I don't know if it's actual pain to be worried about or if it's in my head. I'm kinda a paranoid person about this stuff and have been worried about my liver and drinking since my first drink because someone in my family died from liver failure due to drinking at 23, so I know it's not impossible. I'm 6'2 180 so I'm not overweight or anything either, should I see a doctor? Do you think it's my liver?
