Have you gained any weight?
Did you eat a big meal right before you had your bp taken?
A physician told my husband that in order to get an accurate reading, a person needs to be relaxed for about 10 minutes.
If you were rushing around before it was taken that could affect it too.
I wouldn't worry too much unless it occurs often, but the top number is still good. The bottom number is marginal.
