Rapid heart rate and high BP at 19

I m 19 and have a resting heart rate of over 100 beats per minute (it is consistently hight - not just because I m anxious or stressed at the time I took it). I am not overweight. I also have consistently high blood pressure of around 130/90. What do you think is wrong with me or is this normal ?

The cause of quite a few heart beat abnormalities can be caused by hyperthyroidism. There are many instances of resting heart beats of 180 in extreme cases. So have them check your heart , but have a T4 test . that will check for thyroid abnormalities. My brother developed this problem and over time was bordering on 169 -180 resting heart beats with blood pressure of 150 over 110. He is a big man and lost 100 pounds in 6 months before he saw a doctor.
