Mooring ball too close?

Our boat was launched on Saturday and when we went to see it yesterday we noticed that the stern is rather close to the mooring ball behind us (I'd say our stern is within 6 feet). It's close enough that we couldn't tie our dinghy off of the stern. The marina said the ball behind us is unassigned so we could use an extra long painter to tie the dinghy off, but I was thinking of asking to be reassigned to a different mooring ball.

Am I worrying over nothing? This is our first boat, so I recognize that's quite possible! Any thoughts would be appreciated.
