In brief: Stress

Your blood pressure and pulse readings are a little elevated but still within normal limits.
Clearly the chest pain or worry may be affecting both your blood pressure and your pulse. There are many causes of chest pain besides heart disease. The echocardiogram will make sure that your heart function is normal and that the valves of the heart are working normally as well.

In brief: Test for heart

Your doctor likely wants to evaluate whether the pains are being caused by the blood vessels to your heart.
The echo stress test provides a lot of information about the heart at relatively low risk.

In brief: Symptoms concerning

I am glad you are scheduled for this test.
Your blood pressure is okay. Your heart rate is a little high for resting, but not a problem for the test. If your chest pain gets worse or more frequent i say call 911 if it persists longer than a few minutes.
