Blood pressure should go up as the blood is pumping harder through your body when exercising, although if your head feels weird you might want to go easy, you might have a head cold or something coming. Youll find if you continue exercising your blood pressure goes down even if your working quite hard, this is a sign your fitness level is improving. Just take it at a comfortable pace for you and then build it up at a harder level when you feel its too easy. xx
