My heart rate is running a little high. Like 90. I'm sick, and have been taking antihistamines for my allergies. But I'm not sure if that would cause it. Should I be worried?

Currently it's 89-90 because I am a little worried about it. I also suffer from anxiety. No chest pain or anything. I have been taking Benadryl. And it's been a couple of days, ever since I got sick.

Thanks for all these additional information.
I understand your concern.
Well as you describe,normal range of heart rate is 60-100 bpm.

So your 89-90 bpm is not high.

Low grade fever,infection can be contribute to such elevation of heart rate.

Elevated heart rate when sick is understandable but elevated heart rate while you are resting is a worrying sign.

However if it's more than 100 bpm at rest when you are healthy then you need to be concern.

You should take warm liquids.

Also start a multivitamin supplement to boost your immunity.
