I am 23 male, 150 lbs. Non smoker and non drinker. 

I took my blood pressure after 5 min and it was 137/78. Do I have high blood pressure?

    🥴 I dunno.

    140 is borderline. But no clue what 78 means.

    You do not make a diagnosis of hypertension based on one reading.  You would need to take your pressure several times at different times of the day and compare.  If your SBP is over 120 and/or your DBP is ovre 80, then you may have hypertension.
