hi,
yes you should be concerned. You should visit local cardiologist and get echo done. Of hole is small it can closed with device and it's minor procedure and if it's larger then you will need surgery.
But you get yourself treated because it may later lead to irreversible damage to heart and lungs which is beyond treatment.
