It is hard to tell in what shape your abs are at the moment, you would need to shed some fat before you can see them. But you can try and figure out what shape they are in.
Do your abs do for you what they are supposed to? I don't mean working out here, just regular day-to-day moves. If not, you might need to work them out.
You might want to check how many sit-ups you can do. If you can do more than ten at once, you might want to focus on weight loss and leave your abs alone besides regular cardio. You still have to use your abs regularly for them to stay in the shape they are.
Once you have visibly lost some fat, it will be easier to evaluate the state of your abs. But any casual workout for abs, if done right, will be good for your body without being dangerous for your health. Accidents usually only happen to people who overdo it.
That look you are afraid of is the result of people lurving workouts and being very proud of their abs. If that is not you, chances are slim it will ever happen to you.
