In brief: Maybe.

Murmur is sound of blood flowing.
Some doctors hear better than others and some report murmurs more frequently. Changing doctors may change your murmur. Because your blood does not always flow with the same dynamic, you may have a murmur one day and not the next. The characteristics of the murmur and change over time are key. A new and ugly sounding murmur needs eval.
