My 5 mo old stepped on a slightly protruding carpet tack while jumping in his jump seat and pricked his toe, drawing blood. Should i be concerned?

In brief: Depends

If you cleaned the wound & he has started his immunizations which include tetanus, i don't think i would worry.
Monitor the area for redness or swelling that might occur if an infection set in, if not, the issue will pass without further problems.
