"Pay attention" means to Observe or to listen by concentrating on something.

-- I would like you all to pay attention to the lecture. I may ask you question after the chapter is over.

"To be careful " is to beware of something or to be cautious/be on guard.

-- Please be careful of that dog. It looks dangerous to me.
