Dogs pregnancy lasts 63 days. Regardless of her possible heart murmur, she should go to the vet periodically anyway to make sure she doesn't have issues while being pregnant.

You could have the vet terminate the pregnancy.
If you decide to go ahead with it, definitely read up and try to inform yourself.
I'm not a breeder, but I do know that when she's in labor you'll need to already have a whelping box out and have the phone ready in case you need to call the vet.

Having had dogs with heart murmurs, there is a good chance it will be passed on to the pups. Depending on the dergree of the heart murmur. It may be a good idea to have her fixed if it is not a problem because giving birth can be hard on her also. Good luck
