In brief: Not needed
This is basically double the recommended dose in 4 hours, risk is bleeding and also risk to kidneys.
This is not dose needing emergency care, but make sure you take no more for at least 8 hours and flush your system with plenty of water.

In brief: No
Unless you are allergic to Aspirin or took them with the intent to committ suicide.
325mg is typically the maximum single dose.
