AFIB reading on blood pressure monitor - what should I do?

Have been taking regular blood pressure readings for my mum on machine that can also detect AFIB. She is already on Apixaban, having previously been diagnosed with AF. However, in the last two days, the AF indicator on the machine has been lighting up when it hasn’t for the last six months. Should I be concerned? She seems normal and has been taking her meds.
