Certainly can be: There's nothing wrong or unhealthy about a heart rate of 50. Seasoned athletes normally have hr of 50. Within reasonable limits, it's a sign of health to have a slower heart rate and at 32 and with hrs in the 50s, i suspect that you are healthy.

Heart rate: Resting heart rate in the upper 50's may be a sign of excellent aerobic conditioning. If no symptoms it is not a cause for concern.

It may or may not: Further assessment is needed to confirm that diagnosis. That increase in heart rate can be caused by anxiety, pots, dehydration, etc.

Symptoms?: As you are taking a beta blocker (concor), your doctor typically may be attempting to achieve a slightly lower heart rate than normal (often in the 50's). An occasional heart rate in the 40's with no symptoms is usually OK. If your heart rate is mostly in the 40's and especially if you feel fatigue, dizziness, etc. your may need a reduction in your dose. Talk with your doctor about this!
