Brief Answer:
Need not to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hello, XXXX,

Thanks for posting a query,

The blood pressure is not very high.
The normal value is 130/80. only borderline increase is seen in your case.

I suggest you to check the BP for 3 consecutive days, If its still high then the dietary modification with less salt diet and regular exercises is recommended. And do the follow up Bp check up after 1 month.

Take care.
