Brief Answer:
Normal data

Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,

For your age it is normal data. Systolic blood pressure (which is 137 in your case) should be below 140 mm Hg. And diastolic pressure in your age can be low, even below 60 mm Hg, it is normal for your age, and pulse is normal.

Wishing you good health
