In brief: Yes

The pulse and blood pressure is the measure of hemodynamics -- so yes, it is very important -.

In brief: Depends

If you do worry about your heart rate, you will cause it to speed up! normal is 60-100 at rest.
Most normal people drop into the 50s (occ 40s) during sleep. Everyone quickens (usually >100) with exercise. If your hr is ever > 190 (based on your age), it's probably abnormal and should be checked out.
