Anyone ever seen this before? Should I change my password?

You apparently have two-factor authentication enabled. This will happen any time you or someone else tries to access your iCloud account/data. If you didn't sign into something right when before this popped up, then you should change your password.

I had this happen too, I didn't sign in to any new devices (to my knowledge) and something popped up in the city I lived in, I hit don't allow the few times it happened and it has not returned

If that wasn't you, or you don't live in that area, you'll want to change your password.

Keep in mind... if you have 2 Factor Authentication... you will always get the pop up when signing in to your iCloud Account... (except for Appstore/iTunes purchases from your trusted device)

So if you visit any Apple websites from any web browser (Even on a trusted device):
http://www.iCloud.com
http://appleid.apple.com

Or if you sign into a new Apple device:
iOS/MacOS device setup
iOS Settings>iCloud>Sign in

Some of the pics in the above posts appear like you yourself are attempting to login to an Apple site.
