Brief Answer:
EXPLAINED BELOW

Detailed Answer:
If you are not feeling dizzy, and weak, or not having any symptoms, an occasional reading has nothing to worry about in it.
Also, two readings are required atleast to confirm low blood pressure.
In elderly subjects, often this reading is considered normal.
Take care.
