Yes: If it is consistently that high, you should see a doctor soon - you need a full evaluation including blood work, lifestyle assessment, and medication. If you have any symptoms like headache, vision change, chest pain, confusion, or low back pain, go to your doctor, urgent care, or er right away.

High Blood pressure?: The number you have is a little on the high side. At your age you should be normal. Keep a log for 1 month. Check at different times of the day 3 to 4 times a week. Note what you ate. Stress levels. If consistently high then yes see a physician.
