Prescribed atenolol for anxiety. Why is pulse and BP higher?

Hello, my psychiatrist prescribed Atenolol for my anxiety today. Half of a 25mg tablet until im comfortable and then the full 25mg tablet once a day at night. I am very cautious when it comes to taking medicine. I would like to know everything about it before I take it and I would like you to help. My bp and pulse are a little higher than normal but not by much. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
