How long has this been going on? Based on what you wrote, I would give it a month before worrying about it unless it gets worse. It could be just about anything, a mild sprain, stone bruise, etc. I personally wouldn't worry about the low heels comment. There is a lot of difference of opinion among farriers that I know about the length of heels, and the horse being comfortable is my only concern.
