I bought a puppy, it just turned 6weeks and due for its shots soon. But it hasn't been dewormed yet should I be concerned?

Yes you definitely should be. You shouldn't have been sold a 6 week old dog as it is required that all dogs (apart from some breeds which can be sold at 7 weeks) are sold at at least 8 weeks old. And if he/she hasn't had any vaccinations, you should be even more concerned. I would take him/her to the vet ASAP and ask to get all vaccinations done that are required. You can also buy a packet of deworming tablets from the supermarket (before you take him/her to the vet) and if the packet says 1/2 a tablet for a puppy aged 2-4 months, either give him/her a 1/4 or a 1/2 of a tablet depending on the size of him/her. Hope my answer was some help to you and good luck with your new puppy.

Check with the vet, a 6 week old puppy is too young for vaccinations.

Yes, it's concerning as it sounds like you bought the dog from an idiot. Take it to a veterinarian now. Keep it in your lap or in a carrier until it's your turn to go to the back. That puppy should still be with it's mother and is at high risk for "everything" ...especially parvo and parasites.
