I had a mechanic look at my car said I have a very very small leak valve cover gasket but no oil is leaking. Should I be concerned or is this a major problem?

Good evening,

If you are using any oil and there is no leak showing, I would wait until it needs to be done.

Did he say which one was leaking?
