You need to speak to your internationl student adviser DSO since otherwise yes, it could be a problem and you can be considered out of status and the DSO will enter such on the SEVIS system. You should have applied for a change of status prior to the start of the Spring 2013 semester but see and talk to the DSO perhaps they can help and have you quickly file for a COS to H-4 or speak to an immigration attorney but definately also to the DSO.
I agree with my colleague.
