In brief: Yes

Many people have an irregular heartbeat that is not dangerous and not reflective of any heart disease.

In brief: It happens, Verify!

While most cases of arrhythmia are not dangerous in "healthy" people, irregular heart beats may be a sign of underlying or structural heart issues and a thorough evaluation by a physician is the best way to determine heart health.
