In brief: Depends
Low blood pressure or hypotension can be a sign of internal bleeding.
Get checked out asap.

In brief: Depends
If you normally run a BP of 89/60 that is normal.
If it's 120 / 80 then you are hypotension and need evaluation and treatment

In brief: Possibly
Although the "normal" blood pressure is 110-120/60-70, a blood pressue of 89/60 may be normal for some persons, especially young woman.
If the pulse is high (>100), then that combined with a low blood pressure could signify impending shock. The only exception is a neurologic injury where a low blood pressure can be combined with a low pulse and signify a shock state.
