In brief: Talk to your doctor.

There are significant risks associated with preeclampsia and high blood pressure in pregnancy.
Sometimes blood pressure medicine is needed, but not always. Patients need to be closely followed with visits and also labs. Some patients need to be delivered early depending on the severity of the disease. Talk to your doctor and follow the directions that they give you.
