Take it easy: Your blood pressure and heart rate are within normal range. Unless you have any symptoms suggestive of heart disease, i would request you to just relax.

Depends: You might just be genetically blessed. See your family doctor to assess this and monitor over time. Important to establish a baseline for future reference. Good luck. Good idea to exercise and improve your diet -- might not change the numbers much, but you will feel better and live longer !
