It could be lots of things, your BP is up and down at different times of the day.
If you are concerned a home BP monitor is not expensive and will allow you to keep a record over a period of time, it's the overall trend that is important in most cases, not individual peak readings.
I would caveat all that by adding I AM NOT A DOCTOR and any genuine concerns should be addressed to someone with more in the way of a medical degree and less in the way of a background in data communications and sales.
