Borderline tachycard: Borderline rapid heart rate can be normal but if this is a change from your baseline state and is persistent or getting worse, you should be evaluated.

In a woman of childbearing age, I would be concerned about anemia. Your BP is normal but your heart's response to minimal exercise is exaggerated. Anemia could do this and is the most likely explanation.
