Yes: It is concerning to you so you should get it checked out. Any heart rate less than 60 is considered bradycardia. There are different reasons for it. Some of them benign. Go to the Doctor and let them tell you its nothing to worry about. Maybe you need to have some labs done. Maybe an EKG. Possibly a Chest Xray. Always better find out.
