In brief: Depends on History
"normal" blood pressure is estimated at 120/80.
A blood pressure of 133/95 is not necessarily that high, but its severity depends on any preexisting medical conditions you may have. Diabetic patients or those with a history of heart conditions, for example, usually have a higher baseline blood pressure than people without any medical history.

In brief: See an MD for Rx
This blood pressure number, if consistently elevated, may need the evaluation of a md for possible treatment for hypertension.
The bottom number alone indicates the need for assessment.
