In brief: Should be fine

Base your activity level on your discomfort level.
You should be fine if it doesn't bother you. At some point however, you should see a general surgeon with experience in both open and laparoscopic hernia repair as we think that hernias are riskier to leave alone in women compared to men.

In brief: This

This is a general surgery question not orthopedics.
You should consult a general surgeon to discuss the situation. It is not common for a female to have an inguinal hernia. The canal being smaller may put you at a higher risk of incarceration of the hernia. That would be an emergency situation.
