In brief: Don't Worry

In the absence of any other symptoms, this is likely benign.
When you see you doctor, ask about a heart monitor that can show what is happening when you have this feeling. An occasional extra beat is common in many people and not dangerous. You will need a check up to confirm that you have no structural heart disease. Monitor your symptoms and see you doctor. Go to ER for worse/long symptoms.
