Is it a matter of concern if a 2 month old tries to suck her fist in a repetitive manner ?

I have a 2 1/2 month of baby girl. About a week ago she started raising her right hand (close fist) to her mouth and bringing it back down in a repetitive motion (at least 10 times in a row without other movement). My questions are: - Is there any cause for coecurn? - What could this be? Thank you.
