Dead bees at the entrance of hive, should I be concerned?

I have a new hive.  I got a nuc on April 15 and set up my hive.  It has been cold and rainy here so I haven't had a chance to open the hive and check on the bees.  I have been feeding them sugar water and noticed bees coming and going out of the hive.  Today, I found 4 dead bees at the entrance of the hive.  It has literally rained here everyday this past week and it is cold.  Should I be concerned?  I don't want to open the hive in this nasty weather and get the bees chilled.  Is there anything I should do?

Thanks
