Freewheel wobble is normal and not indicative of anything. It happens because the axis of the freewheels thread and the hubs aren't perfectly aligned, so as the hub spins it wobbles the axis of the stationary freewheel. if there's nothing else going on, don't sweat it.
If you're concerned about the axle, diagnose it by spinning it while the wheel is stationary. The tip will wobble if it's bent.
An ounce of diagnosis is worth a pound of cure.
