Get a check up: Get it evaluated by orthopaedic or spine surgeon.

Dont jump or run: If you have a disc problem then impact activity such as jumping or running is probably the worse thing you can do. I do not see any harm in waiting to see what happens as long as no neurological symptoms such as involuntary loss of urine or stool, or inability to control your legs.
