Creating a primary key from two fields in the same table

I am using PL SQL with an Oracle database
I am trying to make a primary key from two fields in a table.

The table is  dhcs_contstat_hn2017_TEMP
The new primary key field is called "PrimaryKey".  But it is not set as a primary key yet
The fields I am using to make the field are "record_id" and "main_sgmnt_id_no".
The primary key needs to be inserted on the line that matches the "record_id" and "main_sgmnt_id_no".

I have the psuedo code below, .    

INSERT INTO dhcs_contstat_hn2017_TEMP c
SELECT concat(t.record_id, t.main_sgmnt_id_no)
FROM dhcs_contract_status_hn2017 t
WHERE c.main_sgmnt_id_no = t.main_sgmnt_id_no
How do I do this?
