In brief: Wonderful news

With such a study confirming the size & cause of the murmur you can sit back and wait for it to close on its own.
Usually the loudest of these are picked up at or near birth because the small hole makes a high pitched noise (murmur). Most (this size) close as the baby grows by 6 months to a year. The big ones often make no noise & are picked up much later.
