In brief: Normal

The newest guidelines published in jama in late 2013 consider your BP to be normal.

In brief: It Depends

As other physicians have mentioned this might be in the normal range, but take it in context with your other health numbers.
We recommend water, increased veggie intake and walking 10k steps a day. Here is a health game that will help! Commit to tracking your nutrition and weighing in weekly. If other numbers are high, losing just 10 pounds can reverse this state. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/
