Is there anything I should do?

Trying to be rational here. Is it possible that I might be targeted by a group of people?

A day ago, I was sitting on the train and the seats right behind me (some trains here in NY have back to back seats) were occupied by a couple of thuggish individuals. I was sitting on the train for around 15 minutes and then I'm putting my headphones on and I overhear one of them say "He should've put his headphones on sooner." The next stop I got off and got out of the station (I was walking, not running. Either way I had to make a call to one of my friends as there was no reception on the train and I wasn't sure if we were meeting up - this would influence which train I would be transferring to.)
So I think about it later and I think "oh well, I'm sure that was just an awkward moment."
So today (one day later), I'm walking home from the train station (another train station near me) and I see someone smoking a cigarette call out "Yo buddy..." and he's standing on the stairs leading up to the train station that are out in the open. I pretend to ignore him and then I hear him say "Yo get him... get him..." I start walking a bit quicker than usual (not running) and since there were more people walking towards me on the street it would've been a bit more difficult to get to me if someone were to try to chase me.
Should I be concerned? I usually shrug things off, but this is just making me feel slightly paranoid.
