In brief: Toxins in water

Have it tested and discuss it with your health department.
If it too much you will have to get another source of water or a a proven filtration system. Some degree of these compounds are common in certain geographical regions and not neccessarily harmful.

In brief: That depends

On how much is there.
Some arsenic and Fluoride is naturally present in water from erosion of natural deposits. If the arsenic level is below 10 ug/l and the Fluoride level is below 2.2 mg/l then it is not really a problem. If the values are higher then you need to install a qualified filtration system prior to drinking this water.
