When was it measured and by whom? I used to do physicals for health insurance companies...they considered 140/90 measured consistently as high blood pressure. The diastolic (lower reading) is of most concern since it measures the pressure against your artery walls when the heart is at rest, and yours is high. You should be consulting with a physician on this.
