In brief: It could be positive

What people call anxiety usually has a negative feeling connected to it. You are not describing this as a negative experience. Before fun exciting events, we do get a positive rush. This level of "anxiety" helps us do our best on performances or tests. When it goes to too high a level and interferes with performance, it is what we call negative anxiety.

It may be, but if you get a rapid heart beat with it and it persists, you may need to have a holter monitormto rule out an arrhythmia which may occur randomly and cannot be caught on exam or ekg.
