I get the warning below when starting running a bridge.

Should I change the torrc file, or do something else, to deal with this problem, or should I ignore the message?

Apr 14 06:16:02.385 [warn] OpenSSL version from headers does not match the version we're running with. If you get weird crashes, that might be why. (Compiled with 1000207f: OpenSSL 1.0.2g-fips 1 Mar 2016; running with 1000207f: OpenSSL 1.0.2g 1 Mar 2016).

It seems that you compiled the tor yourself, there seems to be some compatibility issues in the libraries.

Try to instal pre buit tor from a repository.

For debian based:

 sudo apt install tor

Also try to update all your libs

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
