I'll agree with Tom, you don't look heavy enough for it to be a major concern......
+1000. Riding light is what keeps my wheels in amazingly good shape, even though I'm riding 32h wheels at 360+ pounds!
I commute on that one every day on streets that aren't very happy, and just getting out of the saddle seems to be the ticket.
I think you should be fine on those wheels. If you recently purchased the bike, after about 100-200 miles (depending on what you ride a week) take the bike back to the shop and ask them to tension/true both of the wheels for you. Most will do this gratis, but hopefully they actually DO it
One other tip, and I do this often, is to just give each spoke a quick pull a couple times a week and check for any that may be overly loose or possibly broken. I've had broken spokes look fine, then I pull gently and it falls right out. It's weird, but it happens.
