My blood pressure measured 139 over 68. Is it normal?

My blood pressure measured 139 over 68 at the docs today. Is this a reason for concern? I am 27, 5 ft 8 and 160 pounds.

Yes, it is the reason for concern. Normal blood pressure is 120/80. You have an enormous gap (which normally is 40 points, while yours is 73). Besides, 139 is too much, and 68 - a bit low.
