There's nothing in my Preview box in Android Studio

In Android Studio there's nothing in my preview box to the right. In your Android Studio preview box we see the app. In my box it only says " Rendering Problems This version of the rendering library is more recent than your version of Android Studio. Please update Android Studio (Details)"

Now I was able to open a emulation app of "hello world" It popped open separate of Android Studio just fine. Should I be worried and try to fix the preview situation in my Android Studio or should I not worry about it right now as I am able to open and produce an App emulation?
