Absolutely I would just leave it alone.
Your photos are not helping much.
With the pistol disassembled and the slide off - load and insert the magazine.
Use a BIC pen or something similar and slowly push the top round in the magazine forward from the rear of the cartridge until it contacts the feed ramp.
You should see that your rounds during the feed cycle hit the feed ramp ABOVE that gouge.
So it is pretty much a non-issue regarding affecting feed functioning.

You should see my Kimber CDP's feedramp! It's not a gouge, but it's banged up a good bit. Still fires 100%.. Different gun, but all I had for reference..

My Bersa 380CC has a few little scuffs on the feed ramp. The frame, including feed ramp is an aluminum alloy that is relatively soft. If you go on Bersatalk, you can read more about it. I've heard of people that smoothed it out with a polishing tip on a Dremel, being very slow and careful, but I would not worry about it right now. My Bersa goes bang each and every time.
I'm sorry, but your pics are so blurry, I can't see the ding you are concerned with.

The pics are worthless but as long as it is feeding correctly I wouldn't worry about it.
