It depends: First verify that your readings are accurate. Some digital machines are not dependable. If you are a young person (under 25) the readings may be ok. If you are older and taking blood pressure medication you may be overmedicated. See your primary care doctor and bring your machine with you.

Can't say yes or no: There isn't enough information to determine if this is normal or not. Vaginal pain with a period is a good reason to see a md for assessment.
