Should I see an orthodontist about these stains around my permanent retainer?

I've had my permanent bottom retainer for about two or three months now. They gave me the little floss threaders, but I lost them and never got around to getting some new ones. I don't floss regularly (yes, I know I should), but I've been doing it more lately and just noticed these stains on the back. They look scary, like my teeth are decaying away. But they don't hurt or anything. My gums in the front have also extended up in between my teeth. Should I seek a dentist/orthodontist or just take better care of my teeth?
