Should I be worried about my GFR and creatinine levels?

I am a healthy (walk briskly 2 miles a day about 4-5 days a week) white, 51 year old female who has a GFR of 66. Is that something to worry about? I do not smoke, drink a little wine on weekends, blood pressure is usually 120/70. I am 5'11" (large frame) and weigh 170 pounds. My creatinine was 0.9. Should I be worried?

Thanks, Chris
