Yes. If this is much higher than you normally run, it could cause you to feel lightheaded. Did you experience any other symptoms at the time?

Weight gain is associated with high blood pressure, yes.

I would suggest you get on an anti-hypertensive medicine to stabilize your blood pressure, and consider a cardiac stress test as well.
