In brief: VERY NORMAL

you are talking about a normal heart rate .
people who are very athletic might be able to have resting heart rate below 75. 70-90 is a mormal resting heart rate. and the heart can handle it vey well

In brief: Tachycardia.

Your awful young to have a resting hear rate of 90.
You should have your blood pressure checked. Obesity can cause this as well. A sedentary lifestyle doesn't help. Too much salt in ones diet may also attribute to this.
