Just get a new one, especially if you do plan on traveling at some point, then you will be ready to go and no hassles.
A lot of countries want you to have a passport valid for more than 6 months after your arrival to that country. Its to allow for any unforeseen circumstances. Would be very annoying to say the least if you end up somewhere and then your passport expires before you head home. Its mostly a CYA thing.
