Should I report an employee possibly stealing from the till?

I noticed something strange on my fast food receipt. I wasn't scammed, but it looks like the cashier may be doing it to her employer. Should I call the manager and report it, or is this perhaps a mistake?

This afternoon I ate fastfood as I am loathe to do, but I caved in to the "It's fast and I have no time" excuse. When I got home, I checked over my reciepts thouroughly as I have gotten in the habit of doing. I noticed something strange. I paid via credit card, so I have two reciepts.
One is the normal register reciept pictured here
, and the other is the credit card reciept pictured here

I was charged the correct amount on both, however something is definately fishy. The register reciept says I paid $10.00 cash. Is the cashier putting in credit card orders as cash and pocketing the change? Is this a mistake, or something else? Should I call up the manager and let him know, or should I not get involved? Ethically, I feel compelled to report it...but is it worth what may be hassle for me? My paranoid nature pictures me having to testify or something. This isn't likely to happen though, is it?
