Shutter Squeak

I have a *istDL2 that has some shutter squeak, at least I think thats what it is. My DS2 and two D's dont make that sound when the shutter fires.

Should I be worried? Is it an easy fix I can do?

If it is the shutter, then no, it is a fairly difficult repair.
I'd keep using the thing and if the shutter fails completely, then decide if you want to send it off.
Either way, the end result is going to be a replacement shutter block.
