Doesn't sound serious at all. The exposed bit of your lead keel will not rust. Usually the only major concern when paint gets scraped off a lead keel, is with fouling from growth. But it doesn't sound like you leave the boat in the water long enough to worry about that.
No urgency, although most folks would probably want to get around to repainting that abraded area as soon as convenient.
Just for curiosity sake, what kind of boat is this? So, it has a keel/centerboard arrangement with external lead ballast on the keel? What is your centerboard made from? I take it the centerboard was fully up when you grounded?
