I am using valgrind to check my program but it always seems to come with this

==8210== 600 bytes in 3 blocks are definitely lost in loss record 3 of 6
==8210==    at 0x3C03619F: malloc (in /usr/local/lib/valgrind/
==8210==    by 0x3C0978EC: (within /usr/local/lib/valgrind/
==8210==    by 0x3C09A2FD: (within /usr/local/lib/valgrind/
==8210==    by 0x3C09A489: pthread_key_create (in /usr/local/lib/valgrind/

I am not sure if its accurate or not. I use a proper pthread_exit in my thread.
Is there anything more that I should do besides that?
