Ideally you should have a 48hrs heart monitor test called Holters test to record rate and rhythm of your heart thereby detecting any abnormalities . You need to see a heart doctor for this . Having said that if you do not experience any chest pain , breathlessness or diziness with these palpitations then it shouldnt be anything too urgent .

Hope it answers your query .
