Do I have high blood preasure?

I had a physical the other day. My blood pressure was measured at about 134/72 and then 125/72. I was a little nervous at the Doctor's office so maybe that didn't help. My doctor said I'm borderline high blood pressure but he said measure it on your own for a few weeks to see if you're just getting a high reading here. I've been taking my own blood pressure through out the last few days. Some of my readings are 122/69, 138/76, 119/72, 128/76, 115/64, 126/69, 121/72. It's higher in the mornings and it seems lower after I work out in the afternoon. Should I be concerned? I think my doctor is being a little "too thorough". I'm 31 years old and I work out 4-5 times a week. So I'm frustrated that maybe I'm not in as good of shape as I should be. Any comments here are appreciated.
