In brief: Usually no worry

Premature beats n both the upper part of the heart (the atria) and the lower part (the ventricles) are very common and occur at times in almost everyone.
So usually no treatment, or concern, is needed, especially if not felt and no symptoms. A common cause can be stimulants such as nicotine and caffeine, so maybe cut down! if something changes be seen.
