33 year old male. My BP stays around 125/70. Is this worthy of meds or can I just monitor to make sure it doesn't creep up?

In brief: BP

that BP is good. Just monitor periodically as you suggest to be sure it doesn't get over 140/90 at rest.
Minimize salt intake, get regular aerobic exercise, don't smoke and moderate your calorie and fat intake.
