In brief: Not likely

Check several times a day and record for your doctor. Get help, for the panic attacks.
Panic, fight, flight release Adrenalin and raise pulse and BP transiently. But very high BP even briefly can do damage so do not ignore.

In brief: Brief - No problem

For an adult a systolic pressure of 140 is elevated but will not cause heart attack or stroke in the short term. If systolic pressure is persistently elevated it will gradually cause problems, especially as the heart has to work harder. Most adults should have a BP of ~100-125/60-80 when they are calm and relaxed.
BP readings during a panic attack are not adequate for diagnosing hypertension.
