When I blink, I see a black spot in the corner of my left eye. Should I be worried?

In brief: Floater

If the black spot moves with blinks, then it's likely in the vitreous.
If not new and only one without flashes or decreased vision, may not be anything serious. If it's a fixed black spot, then should be checked out for a potential retinal or brain problem.

In brief: Maybe

This may signifiy a problem with the retina.
When you blink it stresses the retina with rapid changes in light intensity and may uncover a weaker spot. Should be looked at with a dilated examination by an ophthalmologist.
