Regurgitation: No, these are very common findings on echo. By themselves these are harmless. Your doctor should be able to tell if there was any other findings of any concern.

Valve regurgitation: Echocardiograms and doppler studies have become very sophisticated that they can identify the most minor abnormalities. "trace" findings are not harmful and nothing to worry about but your tests should be repeated every so often as recommended by your cardiologist to monitor these findings. Perhaps, in due time, these findings can get worse and be treated accordingly as they are discovered.
