Should i cash my 401k check?

Basically my employer that fired me mailed me about my 401k telling me i need to take my money (it's 1000, 886 dollars to be exact). But i keep reading online that cashing out has many cons BUT im also very broke at the moment so i could really use it haha. Im also 25 what should i do?
Update: (It's under 1000, 886 dollars) **
