Generally bad: Normal blood pressure is less than 120/80. However high blood pressure begins anything over 140/90. Anybody can have an occasional elevation. But as you can see, that number is elevated. If repeated measurements are elevated that would indicate that you have high blood pressure and should be treated. We treat when there are 2-3 elevated readings on different days at different times.

Mixture: The top number is good and the bottom number not so good. You are too young for that lower number reading. That lower being high and top okay can be seen in overweight people. i would recheck your blood pressure with another blood pressure cuff and if really high then check your blood pressure under different circumstances and times of day, record and take your record and go see your primary MD.
