No concern: What you are having is likely a muscle twitch of fasciluation. They can be caused by many factors usually related to exercise/overuse or injury, nutrition/hydration etc. There is no concern and there is no specific treatment except to reverse any of the causes by resting, stretching, eating well and staying hydrated etc. If symptom spread then see a doctor in person.
