Is it too soon to start looking for another job? Difficulty level: trying to go from government to the private sector after five months...

Yeah, I've been doing clerical work for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for the last five months. The pay sucks, the job is tedious, and there's a safety issue I have with the workplace. (It's the Department of Public Welfare. You do the math.)
Thing is, how is only working a job for five months even going to look on a résumé? Will it matter? Will someone raise an eyebrow at someone leaving a government job after that length of time?
I don't know what to do, but this ain't it.
