Normal: It is normal. The average adult pulse rate at rest is 72.

Pulse : It is normal for resting heart rate for an adult.however for one to know whether heart rate is appropriate or not, you need several pulse measurements during the day

Should be fine.: Assuming the underlying heart rhythm is normal, a heart rate between 60-100 bpm would be normal.
