RX 6700 no WHQL drivers?

Hello. I'm waiting for my Rx 6700 to arrive. I wanted to download the drivers, but for this card there are only optional not WHQL.

Should I be worried about the support for this card?

No, AMD have quite notorious WHQL qualifying testing which takes a LOT of time. And they basically changed DX11 rendered quite significantly with optimisations that happen after last WHQL (22.5.1), but as your GPU is new (even more new than my 6750XT), basically first driver that support it is one of optional versions. So they need to stabilize new function and then test resulting driver on a lot of configs. 
So, again, no, your card is still supported. Just latest WHQL came before your card was released
