What prompted you to begin taking regular blood pressure readings?  So,  there is a systolic number on top and a diastolic number on bottom.  Your diastolic numbers area always within normal.  That's good.  You show a high systolic reading on the last two days in particular and borderline on the 24th.  So, it warrants more investigation.  Most docs when trying to get a pattern of BP will have you take your blood pressure upon waking.  I really am guessing you are fine (and sure are young to have hypertension)--- but if I were in your shoes, I'd go for a physical and take these readings with you.  They may then have you monitor your heart with explicit directions of what they need you to do.  Let us know how it goes.
