It would be helpful to have some data such as heart rate in BPM at rest (Taken after sitting quietly for a at least 5 minutes).  Then if you are concerned about your exercise HR, give that number too along with a general description of the level of work, e.g., jogging or sprint running...something we can understand.  At the age of 17 I think there is nothing alarming about an exercise HR approaching 200 bpm if you have developed the physical strength over a period of time of regular exercise  (months or longer at least 4 times a week).
