If at some point you actually ARE worried about Down Syndrome (and honestly, just by those numbers I wouldn't be worried at all!) you can have the First Trimester Screening (also known as the Nuchal Transluscensy test). My actual risk for my age before that test was 1 in 596, after that test it was 1 in 1800.
With risks like that I wouldn't bother with an amnio (although we had one for a completely different reason). So don't worry about the numbers, they don't mean much-other than you are pregnant! Congratulations!
An early dating ultrasound (in the next few weeks) could clear up and concerns you do have (molar pregnancy, twins, nothing out of the ordinary...)
