So, sometimes I feel slight pain in my shoulders, and quite frankly I am not sure what is going on with the joint itself. The pain is sporadic, but I have stopped doing chest pressing exercises for the 1-2 weeks. Last time I did DB presses, it hurt my shoulders, but the prior week I did heavy DB shoulder presses with no pain at all. When I do Reach,Roll,Lifts, I feel slight pain in my right shoulder, especially when I reach. However, it’s not preventing me from actually doing the exercise itself. Any help/comments would be appreciated.

Pain tells you something isn’t right.
It is preventing you from doing certain skills/elements. It needs attention.
Has anyone watched your technique to determine if there is a technique error?
What is the rest of your body doing when you perform chest pressing, DB presses etc.?
Shoulder or up/down stream deviations in technique or positioning can be where there issue originates.
For the time it is not preventing you doing the movement, however, that can change anytime.
Reaching your body’s tolerance for the deviations in technique will shut things down.

Nobody has watched me do DB presses, when I do them with my feet still and my back flat. Here is a video of me doing pushups, I feel the same sensation while doing pushups : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mO9B8eGxFpI&app=desktop

You want to have your elbows along the body when doing push ups.
Having the elbows out puts alot of stress on the rotator cuff.
Keeping the elbows close to the body allows you to engage your chest, triceps, lats, traps, and biceps while protecting your shoulders.
Contract your stomach, butt, hands shoulder width apart.

I have the pro membership, what videos would be good for alleviating the pain ? Again, I can lift shoulder up vertically, but when I do chest exercises (the last time I dis them), hurts.

Are you able to do push ups with your elbows close to the body?
What does your DB shoulder press look like?
What is your shoulder position when standing?

I will post a video of me doing DB presses, but when I wake up my right shoulder looks slighly more up than my left one. This doesn’t happen all the time though, most of the time my shoulders look normal. I wathc your videos that you posted.
