Glucose level 139 after lunch by 5 hrs. does that means that after 2 hrs of eating it was higher?

Maybe, bu it is impossible to tell without actually measuring the glucose 2hr after eating. The glucose reading will also depend on the makeup of the meal that was consumed. If you are concerned about high blood sugars, consider discussion with your primary care doctor.
