Anything I need to do about this? Can the plant be fine if these roots just continue to grow out like this?

No, you don't need to do anything. Yes, the plant can be fine.

If the soil dries out very quickly, it could be an indication to repot. But the pot size you have looks about right for the plant size. Several of my plants have also found the drainage holes and are exploring the outside world now - perfectly normal. There are also plenty of roots inside the pot, so you could trim them if they bother you for some reason.

Your Pothos (Epipremnum aureum) appears quite happy and healthy and I wouldn't change a thing.
