I would be.  

It is not likely a threat unless it is open on the internet with samba,
but definitely shows that the remote client connecting via samba is not
properly configured.  If you properly configure the client this would
not be getting logged.

Even more of concern is why the client is trying to connect as
Administrator.  Are you running as administrator on that machine?  If so
there is plenty of risk on the client as well.
