Hi sheelamary.

Welcome to HCM.
The thread coming out loose is not at all serious. Only problem is when you want to ascertain that the Copper "T", is really inside and not fallen off, it will not be possible to ascertain by feeling for the thread. However it can be detected easily on ultrasound examination or by X-ray. There is no urgency involved in removing it.
