You can get a small chip or crack repaired by an auto glass specialist such as Safelite. A repair is a much better alternative to waiting it out until the small crack becomes larger and you are forced to replace the entire windshield.

I have a small crack in my front window of my car. Can someone do window repair or do I need to replace the entire window?

Genrally repairs are just for holes like when a rock first hits. sometimes small cracks can be fixed. You will probably have to replace it.

There are windshield repair kits that inject a resin material into the crack, if it's too large for that it can be repaired by a professional without having to replace the entire windshield.
