I’m cycling this 4gal planted tank but haven’t stocked anything yet. These critters just showed up today, should I be worried or are these harmless? I’ve not added anything to the tank in past few days plant wise

Those are mosquito larvae. Lots of fish would gladly make a snack of them.

I ended up fishing them out of the smaller tank and dropping them into my larger tank, the fish promptly ate them. Thank you guys :)
