What is a normal heart rate ?

If your laying down and your heart rate is 90 beats per minute is that a heart attack alarm?

Nope--not at all. Depending on body size and other factors a normal heart rate can range from 60 beats/min to 100 BPM----with variations even within those two figures. Many well trained athletes have heart beats in the low to mid 50s--and they are in peak physical condition; we call this condition "an athletic heart"......So your heart rate of 90 beats/min is nothing to be concerned about.
