I accidentally burned plastic while cooking

Should I consult my doctor? It was a plastic cutting board and I thought the range was off but it burned for a few seconds but the range emitted white smoke that looked like steam for a few seconds then it was gone. I ran and opened the windows.

The cutting board has two marks (not dark) just looks shaved off. Do you think this will affect me long term?

This happened several times already with grocery plastic I put on the range and didn't know it was on (my stovetop doesn't use gas that is why it's hard to tell). and it burned the same but only for a few seconds.
