Hai,
with the two blood pressure reading (160/90 and 130/90 mmhg0 we cannot come to conclusion as hypertension.
As your systolic in first one seems to be high and your diastolic blood pressure 90 is seems to moderately high.
however,kindly check your BP daily for 5 days and with that valve we can decide whether medication is needed or not.

Thank you
stay healthy
