Is there a health risk with low blood pressure? Isnt it predictable?

No. This is a complex question. For most younger and mid-aged people a lower blood pressure is not associated with increased risk. For older patients too low a blood pressure is associated with worse long-term survival. It is also an issue if low blood pressure is due to poor cardiac function or other medical conditions. The relationship varies depending on the reason for the low blood pressure.
