It'll just be the ring, not the spider (you have to do something really serious to bend a spider, and if you do, the big ring gets so munted that it's unrideable).
As baudman said, if it's worrying you, you can gently bend it back with a large shifter - the bigger the better, as thicker jaws spread the load better. You may find that in some gears you get a bit of noise from the chain dragging on the front derailleur; that would also come under the "if it's annoying you" thing.
I'm going to hazard a guess that it's bent outward. Compacts tend to require a bit more grunt to shift up to the big ring than traditional cranks, because of the greater difference between the two ring sizes. That grunt has to go somewhere when the derailleur is shoving the chain against the side of the big ring, so that's probably how it got bent.
Just ride the bloody thing and enjoy yourself!
