Default Nikon D3000 dust issues

I got me D3000 yesterday and as I was putting on the lens, 2 small miniscule dust specks got onto the mirror. I checked the sensor for dust using the mirror lock up feature and there isn't any on there, but there is on the mirror. should i be concerned about this or not?

Not a problem, the mirror flips out of the way when taking a photo. Don't touch the mirror with anything other than a puff of air from a blower. Never use a puff of air from your mouth.
