MILD pulmonary hypertension NEED HELP PLZ

about a year ago, i was diagnosed with MILD pulm. hypertension...pressure at 33mgHz or whatever....heres the story

i had a sports injury, where they said, OK get an echo to make sure you are ok, blah blah blah....when the results came back they said, YOU HAVE MILD PH AND A VERY SLIGHTLY ENLARGED RIGHT HEART...so i was scared to death, not one symptom, no shortness of breath, no edema or vein in neck etc.....then about 6 months after that which was recent, i had bronchitis, they gave me a chest xray to rule out pnemonia, and my heart was normal size.....so im DEAD confused.....i am a 24 year old cigarette smoker, been smoking for 11 years, cut down and quit in between....but I appear pretty healthy and very athletic....could that 33mghz have just been either a MISTAKE or an AT THAT TIME thing, and could possibly be better now, i am contacting my dock in a week to get another echo, its been a year, but I have felt fine...should i be worried?
