Just got a mcafee notification that my pc might be hacked

Now i dont even use mcafee on my pc i use avast. i just got a notification a min ago( after downloading an mp3 song and being redirected) a little pop up saying my pc may of been hacked with a little skull icon. Mcafee is pre installed on my pc. Is that normal. It literally was a tiny box and disappeared. im running scans right now. Should i be worried?

Its a notification trying to scare you into downloading some bogus software or fake tech support numberm click on Mangage notifications on the notifications and turn off the sites sending them, in the future never allow sites to send you notifications and use an adblocker like uBlock Origin.

Tip: no legitimate site or service will say youre infected or is hacked, this includes emails.
