Yes, that could be regarded as 'high'. As stated above the 'average' for your age should be about 120/80, and below 140/90.
'Average' is a very loose term when dealing with 6 billion people though. Also depends on time of day / current stress level / how good looking the doc is / family history.
Slitting your throat is a quick and effective method of reducing BP, and will have it below 140 within the hour. Stay fit, eat healthily and have it monitored is the rather more boring conventional way.
