In brief: Depends
Abdominal distension is a very vague symptom, it could mean something as simple as gas or something more worrisome.
Associated symptoms will help determine what to do next. My recommendation is a good history and physical exam by your physician will help determine how to proceed.

In brief: Take seriously
If abdominal distension is associated with vomiting and pain and obstipation(inability to pass gas or stool) you should seek attention.
