Never repot a new plant and never repot any plant unless it is absolutely essential. Unnecessary repotting is the number one cause of plant failure. It is a common misconception that plant roots need lots of room in a pot. In fact, plants grow best when they are kept moderately potbound. As long as there is enough soil for the roots stay appropriately moist between waterings, then there is no need to repot. Repotting is not as simple as is commonly believed.
