In brief: Sometimes

If it is monocular (you cover one eye and the double vision is still present), not worrisome.
If binocular (you cover either eye and it disappears) then you should see an ophthalmologist.

In brief: Sometimes

Depends upon the cause.
If it is due to injury the danger is that you will be seeing double and can have navigation and driving issues. If it is due to tumor, vascular malfunction or trauma, then more serious accompaniments may be present that need medical treatment so in these situations it could be dangerous.
