My resting heart rate is 55 bpm. I live a sedentary life. I never had my heart below 57. I guess i have little anxiety and I am really worried.

In brief: Have an exam

If you were quite physically active, this would be a fine HR. But, as you say you are not - something is not right.
Don't panic but do have a full exam w/ lab work. It may be thyroid function or some other easy to address issue. Also consider some therapy to learn anxiety mgmt skills. It can really help build a stronger and more satisfying life.
