heart murmur with normal echocardiogram. only showed trace mitral & tricuspid valve regurgitation. does this mean murmur is benign?

Yes: A murmur is just a sound made by blood flowing through your heart and valves. If the Echo is normal, trace mitral and tricuspid regurgitation is probably normal for you. Benign means not indicative of pathology or not pathological. You have a benign murmur.
