Yeah it will be fine to drive to a local repair shop. Heater cores are pretty common to fail. Just like an alternatore or any other component on your vehicle, wear and tear will eventually cause it to fail. Even if you didn't use the heater, the heater core still operates letting coolant flow through it. If it starts to leak, it blows the coolant vapors into the cab.
