    You have two issues here, one is that the top number places you in the Hypertension category (high blood pressure)  The other issue is the large gap between the two numbers which puts extra stress on your body and increases you odds of having a stroke and heart issues.  How "bad" this is depends on how consistently these numbers represent you typical blood pressure during the day.

    Depends on your age. You can look up charts fro BP by age range. Under 60, yes that is slightly high.
