It's most likely nothing serious. First degree block is when the length of time from the p wave to the beginning of the QRS wave is longer than normal. And yours is borderline which means you may actually not even have an abnormality. This link will tell you more about this, but I think as I said this is nothing for you to worry about. If, after looking at the information in the link, you have any questions, please come back to this page and I'll be glad to answer them.
