High Blood Pressure for 19 Year old?

Hi, I'm 19 years old and somewhat healthy. I gym 4 times a week and play basketball. I did get some chest pains and have some trouble breathing, especially when I play basketball or do a heavy set at the gym. Sometimes my heart beats really fast as if it skips a beat out of the blue. I checked my BP at the doctor a week ago and I was at 142/88. Today I checked again at home, and I got 150/96, 143/90, and 147/88. My Heart Beat was 114. I have been eating a little more (4000+ Calories/Day) to gain weight while going to the gym. I went from 6'3 125lbs to 6'4 and 180lbs in the past 7-8 months. Do you think that might have an effect. I don't eat much fast food either.
