    Yes, you can delete it. No, you shouldn't worry.

    As it's in your User folder, it could be a folder you accidentally created (via keyboard shortcuts) and renamed, when you thought you were typing something and somewhere else. It could also be something inadvertently created by some app. Whatever the case, if you delete it and an app did create it, it will likely re-create it. It can't hurt anything to delete it.
