I'm a 30 year old guy, and I have had mild throat pain when I swallow for at least the past couple of months. The pain seems to be on my adam's apple area. When I touch my finger near the top of my adam's apple, it hurts. Not severe pain, but some pain. I don't feel a lump in my throat, just the mild pain when swallowing and when I touch my adam's apple area.

The pain on my throat when I touch it with my finger is in the area between where this diagram points out the "hyoid bone" and the "thyroid cartilage" to be located at:

The pain has been pretty mild (sometimes barely noticeable) until last night. Last night my throat was hurting while I was eating and swallowing, and today for the first time my voice was hoarse all day, but that might be because I was squeezing and touching my adam's apple area last night trying to figure out where the pain was exactly.

I haven't had any throat injuries or anything. I've never smoked in my life and have only drank one or two alcoholic drinks in my life. My dad smoked a lot when I was a kid, but he quit when I was 8 years old.

What could the problem be? Does this sound like LPR? Any home remedies I could try?

There are several things that may be wrong including perhaps GERD.  I would strongly suggest you make an appointment with your primary care Dr. and get the ball rolling on finding the cause of your problem.  Your Dr. may refer you to a GI specialist if GERD seems to be your problem.
I understand your worry over this health issue.
