No: Major issues with the above vitals. Heart rate little low. But if asymptomatic not an issue. Blood pressure acceptable.

OK: I see you are on blood pressure medication already. The first goal is to keep the top number, systolic, under 140, and if we can, under 120. The bottom number or diastolic should be for sure under 90 and goal is less than 80. A systolic in the 130s is considered borderline, but this is just one reading, it will fluctuate a bit depending on what you are doing. These numbers look fine.
