In brief: Yes
Everyone feels their heart "skip, pound, flutter, quiver, " or even race sometimes.
It doesn't necessarily indicate a problem, but if it becomes frequent, bothersome, or occurs with dizziness, passing out, chest pain, or trouble breathing, it's time to get it checked out.

In brief: Get checked.
You should be evaluated with a history and physical exam. In addition an ekg and perhaps a 24hour recording (holter monitor) would be useful to characterize the cause and help to decide if any treatment is necessary.
It may be helpful to avoid excess caffeine and alcohol.
