Default Hard drive breather hole?

I was installing another hdd in my dad's comp and i was just inspecting it and saw a sticker that was like don't cover breather hole? Yet stacking the hdd on top of eachother would cover that up on the hdd below am i gonna run into a problem here. Any quick responses would help seeing as how i have the comp on my floor apart. haha

This is prolly so that there would be no overheating in the hdd:s.
Just put the 2nd hdd in and monitor the temp for some time. If the temps are under 60 C there should be nothing to worry.
