would this be considered a panic attack?

this usually happens when im at school or on the bus sometimes ill be sitting there and all of a sudden my whole body changes. like today i was in class and it was like my palms started to get sweaty, my heart started racing, i felt like my lungs were becoming crushed which caused me to have shortness of breath and it freaked me out. having these "episodes" started just a couple weeks ago and it sucks because i get so scared and i just literally sit there for 10-15 mins waiting for it to pass. i don't know what to do. i wanna talk to someone, preferably my guidance counselor (as a start just to see what happening). what do think this is? what do you think she'll say? had this ever happened to you?
