Q: what is it when your heart feels like it is gurgling

My heart periodically seems to gurgle and it makes me a little short of breath for a second or so.  It does this sometimes a couple times a day.  The longest it lasted was for about 10-15 minutes twice but normally only does it for a couple seconds. I am 47 in relatively good shape-exercise and try to eat healthy but I am on 3 high blood pressure pills.  Have had high blood pressure since age 25 and all of my brothers and sisters have high blood pressure.  Is that normal for a heart to gurgle without any exersion?
