No, you do not need to be concerned.
Mushrooms pop up when conditions are just right, and with all the cloudy, damp days they have been numerous. There is nothing you need to do.
If they bother you, you can knock them down.
In nature, they help to break down dead and decaying wood, which is why they are on the mulch.
