Variable : Heart rate is variable... That means it is dynamic and changes depending on your mood, anxiety level, level of fitness, present activity, etc... Heart rate of 30 beats per minute above baseline could be normal depending on the situation. Talk to your doctor about your concerns.

Not necessarily: if you're not on medications, normal resting heart resting heart rate is around 60 - 100 beats per minute. However, some people who physically fit/in shape, athletes, or those who are involved in a lot of physical activity can have heart rate less than 60. It becomes a concern if you get symptomatic from it; which includes, feeling fatigue, dizzy/lightheaded, passing out, weakness, etc., see a DR

Check pulse diary: normal heart rate is 60-100 bpm. If you have a sustained heart rate of 120 or greater get checked immediately for cardiac arrythmia ( (tachycardia)- Check your heart rate 3-4 times daily and show your diary to your local ER or physician.
