In brief: Get an EKG

See your doctor, he may do an electrocardiogram & also hook up a 24hr holter monitor which will record your heart beat for 24hrs.
In the mean time decrease your intake of caffein, alcohol & stop smoking.

In brief: Easy

If you feel more than five flipflops in a minute while not overdoing caffeine, if your flutter is accompanied by pain, shortness of breath, or fainting / wooziness, or if your heart is going off like an old-time alarm clock with very rapid beats for a while, then a physician's office visit is in order.
