Might be slightly high at 1.5 bar so look at your manual for correct figure and drain some water out of rad to lower it.

Nothing to worry about though :D

Usually boiler pressure is set at 1 bar cold

The red marker is there as an indication of a possible fault,BUT many are not set at any particular pressure on installation.

Going from 1.5 bar cold to 2.0 hot sounds about right ,just as said maybe a little high at 1.5,nothing too serious though
