Yes it does pose a problem. Do a google search for something like power supply fan replacement and you may find that you can install another fan in the power supply.
Without the fan to cool things, the power supply won't be reliable. This could mean voltage surges (that could fry components) or it could just die one day and you wouldn't have a system until you got a new one.
The best thing to do (IMO) is to get a new power supply ordered immediately. That way it'll be there when this one dies. In the meantime, you may want to have another fan blowing air through it to help keep it cool.
Of course the best solution is to stop using the PC until the power supply fan is fixed.
