A systolic pressure of 140 is classified as stage 1 hypertension. For that, one is usually advised to try lifestyle modifications (smoking cessation, alcohol moderation, sodium restriction, the DASH diet, increased moderate exercise, etc) to bring it down.
A diastolic pressure of 56 is lower than average, but as long as you are asymptomatic it is not a problem.
