You don't give your age and gender and you don't tell us why you were admitted to the hospital.
A bicuspid aortic valve is not normal, and such valves are somewhat more prone to develop narrowing and calcification. So your doctor should keep an eye on this problem.
I am uncertain whether you have hypertension (high blood pressure) inasmuch as you mention only two pressures that were elevated under possibly abnormal circumstances (being in the hospital for some reason).
Get some more blood pressure checks when you are out of the hospital. Indeed, consider taking blood pressures at home after being taught how to use the equipment. Write the pressures down, and then consult with your physician.
