No: while coffee with sugar and cream will definitely raise your sugar level, 140 is a bit high. Go see your doctor and get checked out.

Random: A random level of 140 is not much to be concerned about by itself. If you are concerned about being diabetic, you should see your doctor so that the most accurate testing can be done.

May be: You have not given information of the time interval between drinking the coffee and getting your blood tested. If you are not diabetic, your blood sugar level will eventually fall to normal range within 1 to 2 hours. Take it easy on the cream and sugar though.

Sounds normal.: A fasting blood sugar between 60 and 100 is considered normal. But I wouldn't skip meals on a regular basis, if that's what you're inferring in,your question. Finger sticks should be normalized within two hours after finishing a meal.
