I found out I will be credited as a co-author on a white paper.

How excited should I be? I'm an undergraduate student. I've been helping with all the research and preliminary analysis that went into the paper. I'm not sure where it will be published, beyond the university's website, but it is rather related to my field of study and what I would like to do in the future.
Do I put this on my resume? How big of a deal is it that I'm a co-author (I assume it's a bigger deal since I'm undergraduate rather than graduate)? I'm pretty proud of myself but I don't know if this is something that calls for all my friends and a bottle of alcohol to celebrate as an achievement.
Just want to know what "getting semi-published" means in the grand scheme of things and for graduate school applications.
