New pedals' bearings adjustment

I bought some Shimano pedals, the m540. I always inspect everything really closely, so I noticed that the left pedal has very little play in it. It's only noticeable if I grab it with my fingers and rock it perpendicularly to the pedal's axle. It's not noticeable when I'm riding.

Should I adjust the bearings if the play is barely noticeable? Or is a little play normal in pedals? It's not a difficult task and no special tools are needed for this pedal, but I don't want to waste time fixing something that shouldn't be fixed!

I don't know about high-end products, but I noticed that with middle level stuff, it's better to make sure everything is working properly if you want the parts to last.

Thank you.
