Not that I noticed, but I only watched it for a few minutes this morning. Should I be concerned ?

I'm afraid that is Brown Jelly Disease,not good.I would remove it from your display tank and put it in a quarantine tank or bucket.Research on the Internet for the best possible treatment for it.Honestly it doesn't look good.
My advice for the future is to dip your new corals before putting in DT.
I use Seachem Reef Dip coral disinfectant myself.Only costs about 8 bucks a bottle.

Also the Flowerpot Gonipora corals almost never survive long in our aquariums.I know it is hard to resist when you are in the LFS,but always write down the name of the coral then go home and research it on Liveaquaria or other sites before buying.I learned that lesson when I first started,it will save you a lot of grief and money.
