I have a white spot above my front teeth. It isn't painful but I notice it and it feels kind of sore. Should I be concerned? is it an infection? should I see dentist?IMG_4549.jpg

That is what is known as a maxillary frenum (everyone has one). It can look white if you pull your lip tight or irritate it. Nothing at all to be worried about!
