I have an issue with a delete item link in my webpage. It is supposed to do nothing (after
some conditions become true) but I noticed that the chrome debugger is generating internal server errors each time i click the link.

Should I inform the developer with that issue? Is it even an issue at all?!

The error is:

"Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error) "

Yes. If your server responds with a 500 error, you should notify your developer.

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_HTTP_status_codes#5xx_Server_Error

No problem. My motto: "When in doubt, write a bug report." In the best case, you've notified the right people about a critical issue. In the worst case, someone reads it and dismisses it as unimportant. But if you keep it to yourself, everyone loses. –  Joe Strazzere Mar 18 '13 at 16:57
    
Not quite the same thing, but this might help: allthingsquality.com/2010/04/non-reproducible-bugs.html You only fail when you don't write the bug report. –  Joe Strazzere Mar 18 '13 at 19:42

Yes this is the generic error given when 'something' goes wrong in a server. You have to report this error to your development team. They should have the appropriate logging to deal with the problem.
