In brief: that is normal

If you have fair skin, it is completely normal to see veins under the skin surface.
Light blue veins, in particular, are common and are called reticular veins. Veins you can feel or skin discoloration (darkening) around the veins are abnormal. Otherwise, no need to do anything.
