if its not leaking any fluid it may just be a casting imperfection, just keep an eye on it

Exactly - those are just casting marks.

no, the case might be 1/2" thick there and the casting flaw might only go a few thousands deep, if it doesnt start to leak, dont sweat it

Sound like the crack lines will get worse/bigger with time?

+1 on what others are saying; not an issue if not leaking. I've seen much worse 'cracks' in the case than that, and they were fine.
