It does not matter.  Choose whichever major appeals to you more -- classes/professors you enjoy and are passionate about.  You will have to take chemistry/biochem as a biology major and vice-versa you need to take biology class (usually multiple) as a biochem major.  Biology is somewhat broader too, and you'll get plenty of chemistry in pharmacy school, if you still choose to pursue this path -- thing change in college.  Good luck.
