In brief: Recheck

With a right size cuff, should be covering 2/3 of your arm, one reading should be rechecked, measure both sides, if still high readings see your doctor for evaluation, take care

In brief: High blood pressure

that is considered high blood pressure and should be repeated to verify the number. If in fact it is high, a cause should be looked into as to why it is high.
