High Heart Rate + Chest Pain?

Ok so I'm 18, weigh 113kg and I am 116cm tall. I do exercise every morning for about an hour. I have taken my heart rate and blood pressure before, after and then  an hour after that. Here are the results:
BP = 129/85 BPM = 120 (when I wake up)
BPM = 126 (this is during exercise)
BP = 130/85 BPM = 129 (an hour later)
I check my heart rate before I go to bed (which is at rest, usually after reading or knitting) and it is always around 108 - 140bpm, last night it was 136bpm. I don't drink anything caffeinated. I always drink water. My blood pressure is normally around 130-85.
When I'm exercising I get out of breath really easily, but recently I have been getting strange pains in my chest (like a heavy something on my chest) also at rest.
So is that a problem or not? If so, what can I do?
I have asked this question before, I just want to make sure not to waist the doctors time.

Hi, your blood pressure values are within the normal range. The elevated heart rates can occur due to anxiety or exercise. Pain can also cause tachycardia. The chest pain becomes significant if with exercise the pain increases. This could be more relevant if you are a smoker, are overweight, have a positive family history, are a diabetic and have hypertension. The other causes to consider would be cervical spondylosis (neck problem) or disorders of the nerves, muscle or shoulder joint. It would be wise to consult a doctor just to be sure it’s nothing more serious. So please consult your primary care physician who may ask for an EKG or a treadmill test to rule out a cardiac cause for the pain. Regards.
