A strong heart beat is not necessarily abnormal and "a little fast" doesn't tell what the heart rate actually is. After all, "a little fast" may be perfectly normal. I assume that they took an electrocardiogram at the hospital and that it was normal. Consequently, I am uncertain why you are worried.
Please keep in mind that I am unable to diagnose medical conditions online.
