I've got a brass freeze plug somewhere inside mine. Fell in while getting the block ready to go to the machine shop....Rotated the block every which way I could, felt around the best I could, and eventually just gave up and accepted it was going to live in there forever. Been driving it for a year with no issues. You should be fine.
