Concrete Porch Cracking - should I be concerned?

Hi - My home is 12 years old. Slab foundation. This summer I noticed these cracks on my covered front porch. The main crack runs horizontally across the porch from the joint. It is about 4 feet long. There are other very faint cracks in the porch as well. I'm a young widow and a little overwhelmed taking care of a home by myself. I am trying to arm myself with information before calling in contractors. My question is - would this be shrinkage after 12 years? Or is this a bigger settlement issue I should be concerned about? I'm in the South.
