My female's grandfather and my male's great grandfather were the same male. Is this too close? Should I do something about this pregnancy?

As long as the parents are healthy and have no genetic anomalies, I wouldn't worry about it. That common ancestor isn't close enough for me to be concerned, although there are people who won't use any pairing that includes any name in common on both sides.
