Brief Answer:
It will pass out with stools, not to worry.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Such a small object will easily pass out of the intestines with the stools, please do not worry.

You can observe your stools for the next 24 to 48 hours to see if you have passed it off, and meanwhile if you develop any pain in the tummy then you must consult a general surgeon.

As of now nothing much needs to be done at all.

Hope this answers your question.
Regards
