Hi Roxanne

Welcome to HelthcareMagic.

This is definitely high blood pressure for your age.But if you have observed this value just once , wait for a week and get examined again.If you still have a higher BP , you would be needing Anti Hypertensive (to lower BP) .If it is a just random single finding , you can neglect and get another checkup done in 3 - 6 months .

Take care.
