In brief: Wait and watch
A child with low grade fever likely has a virus, sometimes with no other symptoms.
If fever gets higher or something worrisome develops (like vomiting, bad headache, rash or looking just "sick") then definitely talk to or see your doctor.

I would recommend PCP first before any ED visits. Let's keep health costs down.
