You should not worry. This is too small to cause blockage or bleeding. With an object that tiny, it is more risky to intervene to remove it. Likelihood, you will pass it in stool but may be too small to see. Eat plenty of fiber to bulk stool and drink plenty of fluids. These will promote regular bowel movements and passage.
