In brief: No, yes

That heart rate is high for a resting heart rate.
Anxiety can sometimes contribute to an elevation in baseline heart rate. I would schedule an appointment with a primary care doctor for a medical checkup, that would be a good place to start.

In brief: Normal

A heart rate of 106 can be a normal response to fever, illness, dehydration, fear, exercise, etc.
. If you have a personal or family history of heart disease, chest pain, palpitations, shortness of breath, easy fatiguability then consult your PCP for further testing. Good luck
