Hi Ann, normal blood pressure is below 140/90, normal heart rate is 60-100. Your BP reading is slightly higher. The way of measuring BP, is after 5 minutes rest, measure it, record, for three times a day, then calculate the average. If your daily average is below 140/90, you can start with healthier lifestyle, limit your salt intake to 2300 mg per day, eat more fruits/vegetables, see if the it goes lower. When the daily average continuously goes beyond 140/90, you need to start on oral BP medication.
