Unhappy Mistakes in my LoR

hi all
i have found a few mistakes in my lor, i am wondering if to request a fresh one or go ahead and use it like that.

1. it is addressed to whom it may concern instead of dear program director.
2. the letter writer wrote that i had passed 'all 3 steps' of usmle, i have passed just steps 1 and 2 ck&cs. she inerpreted cs as a third exam.
are these major issues or should i just upload it.

If communication with the letter writer is easy and update is quick then do it, if not then it's OK these are not major mistakes.
