Dent on rear wheel.

Hey guys, my rear wheel has a slight dent in it. I couldn't tell ya how it happened because it's something I missed when I bought it. I've had it for almost a month and noticed it few days ago. There's no air escaping, and no vibration when riding in town. I posted a picture for everyone to view and get some insight on it.

Do I replace it?
Will this be ok being so minor?

I used to have a Suzuki vs that had a small dent in my rear wheel as well that was around the same size and I had the bike for almost a year and even replaced the tire and never had any issues. From my past experience I would say that yours should be the same. Just keep an eye on the tire pressure a lot to spot any leaks.
