help pls, YouTube savvy people

OK, guys, so I just got what looks like a genuine looking email from YouTube saying "You are receiving this email because a new password was requested for your YouTube account. If you did not request a new password for this account, ignore this email and continue to use your current password."

This makes me think:

a) someone has made a half-hearted attempt to hack my YT account what I only created for the purposes of arguing with newschoolers who were getting their canon wrong. (What?)
b) this happens often enough that YouTube's emails are designed to just breeze past it to make you not worry.

Am I anywhere near the mark?
