Is it bad for my computer to be running at 85% cpu usage while playing valorant? I have a intel i5 8600k and a gtx1050ti.

No, it's normal, temps and voltage are bad for a cpu/gpu, if those are too high, then yes, that is bad.
If you haven't overclocked or messed with BIOS, you should be fine for both. If you want to be sure, download and open HWINFO while under load or ingame and check the temps.
