How worried should i be about this?
do you have public IP?
This attack was blocked by ESET's personall firewall, so no need to worry about it.
In case you have a public IP address such attacks may occur from time to time.

Public IP? Im using the dynamic one provided by my ISP.
This has me extremely paranoid, i feel as if i should format and start over again.
Formatting every time your firewall blocks something means that you're going to spend more time installing windows than you will using it!
They're just randomly scanning the ports available, looking for a backdoor into your system. Eset blocked it so they will just pick another IP to scan. Rinse and repeat.
