No it is not if present for short time, but for longtime it can cause damage to the heart muscles.

Relist: Incomplete answer.
BP readings are 138/102 pulse98 134/93 pulse96 is it safe
This is on the higher side, this pulse rate can be due to many reasons, if this stays for short time with normal bood pressure then it is not dangerous, while for longer periods it can cause damage to the heart muscles, So it needs medicine like beta blockers to keep it around 80.
