Yes: There are kind of tachycardia's which can be troublesome and happens in young age. You may wanna get evaluated by a cardiologist.

Depends: If you find the symptoms troublesome, by definition, then they are a concern. Fyi: your albuterol can cause all those symptoms. If you want to determine if there is any significant rhythm disturbance present, (as opposed to simple cardiac awareness), a 24 hour holter and echocardiogram would be indicated.
