You don't say what your heartrate is at other times, but if you usually have a slower heart rate and you check this "resting heart rate" before you rise from lying to sitting up, then it's likely you are startled by an alarm clock, waking from a dream, anxious or excited when you wake up. As long as it returns to normal, you're ok, but you should explore why you get this probable adrenaline rush.
