What does it mean when you have a murmur in your heart ?

what does it mean when you have a murmur in your heart? I went to the doctor for my headaches, and instead found something with my heart. They said that they could hear a murmur inside it. And they did an AKG on me, and said that it wasn t too good. So theyre sending me to a cardiologist, and now im kind of scared as to what the murmur could be inside my heart... What could it be? Ok, of all the times that I ve been to the doctor, they ve never noticed this murmur in my heart, and now it just appeard out of no where? Its kinda weird, plus still is freaky...

It is a leak in the heart usually in a valve. Most murmurs are functional, so don't worry too much.
