Don't worry about it. Your MacBook Pro is designed to shut itself down if it heats up beyond specs. Just don't use it on your bed, lap, carpet, or any other surface that restricts cooling. I personally recommend a notebook stand. Not only for the cooling they assist with by allowing air to flow beneath, but also to protect over zealous gamers from spilling their drink on the keyboard!
