What is NORMAL anyway

I am 35 and confused about what my b/p is actually supposed to be. I take it in the doctors and it is 160/90 (because I HATE the doctors office) but I go to the drugstore and take it at home and it seems like a good number. The confusion is because at different drugstores it says different numbers are normal. Last night my b/p was 132/67 and my pulse was 65. Well the 132 number scared me so I took it again and again and it was always 125 to 130. No I'm thinking I have hypertension and need medicine. Any thoughts?
